Schedule for the Eucharist and the Divine Office at Santa Rita Abbey

Santa Rita Abbey Public Chapel & Retreat House

Temporarily Closed


December 2020 update:

Our retreat house and public chapel remain closed for now. We intend to re-open after a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is readily available for everyone. We continue to pray for our global human family and for the alleviation of the suffering and challenges this pandemic has brought into our lives. May God bless you and your loved ones throughout this Advent and Christmas season, and draw you ever closer to his merciful and compassionate heart!
