The long-awaited plan to construct the National Shrine of Saint Rita’s Cascia Center to provide services affiliated with the mission and ministry of the Shrine is closer to fruition with a tax credit allocation of some $12 million for the development of Saint Rita Place. The Shrine is working in partnership with Catholic Housing and Community Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to construct a five-story mixed-use space with 46 one-bedroom apartments for income eligible seniors 62 and older, with the ground floor dedicated to the outreach ministries of Saint Rita Shrine. Construction of the $16.9 million project is anticipated to begin in Spring 2020.
