All are invited to dine out at selected restaurants monthly to benefit the food pantry. Just mention to your waiter that you are there to support St. Rita and the food pantry gets a percentage of your order. This month we will go the “Charles Seafood” in Harahan. The dates are Tuesday June 21st and Thursday June 23rd. We are doing two days, not to make you go out on two days, but to make it easier for those that find one of the days a bad day. Dine-in or takeout lunch or dinner. Thanks to everyone that has participated in the past for their support of this program. Many of you may not really understand how much you are helping. Please be assured that you are and please keep asking friends and family to join you. We will publish locations as they are determined. Call Gene Hickey at 430-8778 or email email@example.com to make reservations

“In the Blessed Sacrament God loves us so tenderly,
He empties Himself completely. O, who could believe it?
Withholding nothing, He gives his all.
He gives his flesh for us to eat He gives his blood for us to drink.
He gives his soul, his infinite being To transform us into Himself.
Praised be the Blessed Sacrament!”
(St. Louis de Montfort, Hymn No. 30, 3rd Stanza).
*St. Rita’s Adoration Chapel has many open hours!
