Rita Rambler

We're excited to share with you our podcast, the Rita Rambler, by Cascia Hall Admissions.

The Rita Rambler is our way of giving you a peek behind the scenes of Cascia. It allows us to keep our community up to date on the happenings at Cascia, and any potential new students and parents a little dose of what we are all about. 

St. Rita of Cascia was born in 1381. She became an Augustinian nun later in life and is the Patroness of Impossible Causes. St. Rita Chapel here at Cascia Hall was dedicated on the feast of St. Rita of Cascia, May 22, 1958.

On each episode, we will be interviewing students, faculty, staff, alumni and more! Follow the show to hear a glimpse of their experiences both in the classroom and within our community.
