A Saint by Sarah Jane exclusive charm bracelet inspired by Catholic Charities
Saint by Sarah Jane exclusive
Catholic Charities Wichita is excited to collaborate with Saint by Sarah Jane to provide an exclusive “Faithful Servant Collection” with all proceeds benefiting the Faithful Servant Fund. The collection will feature one or two new charms each year inspired by Catholic Charities, our ministries and those we serve.
The bracelet and inaugural charm features St. Rita of Cascia, patron saint of abuse victims. The St. Rita charm honors all those we have and will serve through outreach programs and the shelter at Harbor House Domestic Violence Shelter.
St. Rita of Cascia
Saint of the Rose and patroness of impossible causes and domestic violence
St. Rita of Cascia became an Augustinian nun at the age of 36, after the death of her husband and two sons. She dedicated herself to prayer, works of charity and preserving the peace and harmony to those living in Cascia, Italy. Her prayers, and often impossible requests, resulted in many miracles.
At age 60, while praying before an image of Christ crucified, she received a partial stigmata wound on her forehead, as though the crown of thorns worn by Jesus had been placed on her head. She bore this mark for the rest of her life and it is represented in the charm.
Before her passing at 76, she was asked if she had any special desires. St. Rita requested a rose from her parents’ garden – an impossible request during winter in Italy. But a single blossom on her mother’s rose bush was soon discovered and was presented to St. Rita, which she saw as a sign of God’s love for her.
Known as Saint of the Rose, the granting of her impossible prayer requests lead her to become patroness of impossible causes, as well as abused wives and heartbroken women.
Her feast day is celebrated May 22, the same date on which she died in 1457.

What is the Faithful Servant Fund?
In the fall of 2019, Catholic Charities introduced the Faithful Servant Fund to focus our ongoing efforts to raise dollars to support the work of all ministries.
Contributions to the Faithful Servant Fund give Catholic Charities the greatest flexibility to address the most urgent needs within our ministries and the Diocese of Wichita, whether that be helping the hungry, homeless, poor, lonely or abused.
