We invite you to the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia to experience the peace and serenity modeled by our remarkable Saint Rita, a woman whose faith empowered her to overcome the horror of a murdered husband and the tragic death of her sons. Her faith sustained her as a wife, mother, widow, and nun, meeting every challenge with firm trust in God's will.
During your visit, we encourage you to take advantage of the many devotional options afforded by our beautiful Shrine.
- Eucharistic Adoration
- Private Prayer
- Novena Prayers and Veneration of the Relic (on Wednesdays or by special arrangement)
- Shrine Tours
- Gift Shop visit
Looking for something more? Ask about experiencing a Day of Recollection, including a talk and a group discussion by one of our Augustinian Friars. Some of the most popular topics offered include: Healing and Faith, Reconciliation and Peacemaking, Perseverance in the Face of Tragedy, Faith and Acceptance.
