Groundbreaking of St. Rita Place and the Cascia Center
On August 10th, 2020, the groundbreaking of St. Rita Place and the Cascia Center took place. The Cascia Center was envisioned by Fr. Michael Di Gregorio, O.S.A., current Prior Provincial of the Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova, and former Director of the National Shrine of Saint Rita (1992-2007) as well as pastor of the then parish (1995-2007). The Center was a development of the effort begun in 1989 to expand the ministry and outreach of the Shrine in areas consistent with the charism and spirituality of Saint Rita.

“No one more than myself would love the sure and tranquil quiet of contemplation. There is nothing better, nothing sweeter, than searching around in the divine treasury far from the noise of the world. It is such a sweet and good thing.”
