St. Rita Day Of Giving

Over 100 Years of Making a Difference

Over 100 Years of Making a Difference
For over 100 years, St. Rita School for the Deaf has been positively impacting the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Northern Kentucky communities. 
May 22nd is an important day in the St. Rita community: it is the Feast Day of St. Rita, the Patron Saint of the Impossible.   
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to give our students hope for the future!  Many of our students face challenges and feel that their dreams are impossible, but with your support we can work towards making the impossible, possible.
