Prayer Times at Santa Rita Abbey
The public is welcome to attend any of our services–Mass or the Divine Office–in the Santa Rita Abbey church.
Mass Schedule for July – December 2017
Fr. James Garcia arrives in the first week of July to be our chaplain for six months. His first Sunday Mass will be on July 9 at 8:00 a.m. Until that time, on Sundays the Sisters will be attending Mass at the local parish, and on weekdays at 7:30 a.m. will have a simple Scripture & Communion Service in the monastery chapel.
When we have a resident chaplain:
Monday-Saturday 7:30 a.m.
Sunday 8:00 a.m.
When we do not have a resident chaplain, we celebrate a Scripture and Communion Service Monday through Saturday at 7:30 a.m. On Sundays, we attend Mass at the local parish, St. Theresa’s in Patagonia and Our Lady of the Angels Mission in Sonoita. Please join us in praying for more vocations to the priesthood!
