"A faith-filled and community centered Church in the love and care of our Lord Jesus Christ."
aint Rita Catholic Church of the Diocese of Palm Beach is located in the beautiful Village of Wellington, a city in the suburbs of West Palm Beach, Florida. It is easily accessible for out-of-town visitors since it is located one-half mile south of State Road 80 (Southern Blvd.), on the corner of Big Blue Trace and Paddock Drive, just inside the northern Wellington City limits.
Please feel free to visit the pages of our Parish Website, learn about who we are as a community of faith and the services our parish provides. If you are thinking about moving to the Wellington area, we cordially invite you to make Saint Rita your parish home.

"I've enjoyed working with my fellow ministers here, and it has been a wonderful privilege, a gift, to be able to bring people closer to Jesus, to experience the love, peace, and the joy of Christ,"
