Fathers’ Club

Mission Statement

The members of the St. Rita Fathers’ Club strive to foster fellowship, camaraderie, and service to the young men of St. Rita of Cascia High School, our sons, through tireless commitment to the core values of the school, Truth, Unity and Love. Our goal is to ensure all fathers and guardians of “Ritamen” are welcomed and encouraged to get involved with their sons’ experience at St. Rita High School. The first day your son enrolls in classes at St. Rita, you become a member of the St. Rita Fathers’ Club, and you remain welcome long after your son graduates and begins the next chapter in life’s journey.

About Us

The St. Rita Fathers’ Club is involved with many activities and functions throughout the school year. These events support and award the student body, their families, and enhance the St. Rita experience.

Our goal is always geared toward the betterment of our students and the continued success of our St. Rita mission. The spirit of family, honesty, and integrity is the framework of all our events and activities to help develop our sons into roll model citizens for the future.

The St. Rita Fathers’ Club is financially independent. There are no dues to pay. Once your son enrolls at St. Rita, you are automatically a member of the Fathers’ Club and welcome to all of our meetings, events, and functions.
