About Us

Welcome to the official website of St. Rita Catholic Church, Mararaba

St. Rita’s Parish, Unity Estate is a one big family that comes together to worship God as a family.

St. Rita’s Parish was carved out from St. John’s Parish Mararaba, a parish run by the Augustinians. St. Rita’s Independent Mission was formed in 2012 with Fr. Stanley Aroh as its pioneer parish priest.

It is a parish that has as its patron a wonderful Saint who is known as the Saint of the impossible and difficult cases. No wonder the parish has a greeting which goes, “Mama Rita; the wonder worker.”

The parish is really growing into a beacon of God’s love in the community.  The coming together of people from different parts of the country gives the parish a variety that blends the parish into a miniature Nigeria.

Today the parish continues to grow and attempts to share in the building up of God’s Kingdom here on earth. We invite you to share with us and grow with us as we all learn to grow more in love of God and neighbour.
