Prayer Times

Schedule for the Eucharist and the Divine Office 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.

Santa Rita Abbey Public Chapel & Retreat House

Temporarily Closed

 

Due to concerns over the spreading of the COVID-19 virus, we have taken the decision to close our retreat house and our public chapel as of today, March 14, 2020, until further notice.

We are not panicking, just being cautious.

We know that Jesus our Divine Physician is watching over all people everywhere during this global health crisis.

Please take sensible precautions yourself and stay well. We are praying for you!

Spring 2020

As of March 14, 2020, and until further notice our monastic church is closed to the public.

Will we re-open for Holy Week and Easter? It seems unlikely, but check back at this web page in early April for an update.

God bless you and draw you ever closer to God’s heart now and always!
