Parish Merger Update


We are currently part of the Strategic Planning process in the Pierce Deanery of the Archdiocese of Seattle. As part of the vision for the deanery, we will be merging with other local parishes to form one new Catholic parish community in Tacoma. You can read more about it at the Seattle Archdiocese Pierce Deanery Strategic Planning News page
 
While we are working on our transition, 
there will be no regularly scheduled ministries or liturgies at St. Rita of Cascia Catholic Church. However, Father David Mulholland remains our current Pastor and he is available for pastoral emergencies.

For information on pastoral care, anointing of the sick, and funeral scheduling, please call 253-383-2783 or email parish@saintpats.org.

BACKGROUND
In the fall of 2020, the Archdiocese of Seattle announced a new strategic plan for the Pierce County Deanery, that affects our parish grouping of St. Patrick, Holy Cross, and St. Rita of Cascia Parishes. Most notably for us, it involves St. Rita of Cascia Parish. The following are links to more information and resources:
