The largest national organization of Catholic women in the world dedicated to strengthening their spiritual life through Christ and His Church was founded by the Knights of Columbus in 1903 in Utica, New York. With a membership of more than 200,000 in forty-two states and other countries throughout the world, the C. D. of A. strives to embrace the principles of faith, working through love in the promotion of justice, equality and the advancement of human rights and human dignity for all. Members are encouraged to develop leadership skills, dedication and great enthusiasm for the work of Christ and His church. We are dedicated to our patroness, the Blessed Mother. Our motto is Unity and Charity. We are also pledged to the social and other needs of the Parish, and to intensify patriotism in our country.
Court St. Rita #353 was organized on January 26, 1919. We invite Catholic women to join us in attaining our purposes and goals. Practicing Catholic women, 18 years of age or older, may apply by contacting any officer for an application. Court St. Rita #353 meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Msgr. Wienker Hall. A social time is held after each meeting.
