Welcome to St Rita's Retreat Centre

Fr. Jose Romero O.A.R. welcomed the Mayor of Honiton, Cllr Henry Brown to St. Ritas Retreat & Conference Centre.

We welcome Fr. Jose Romero O.A.R. as the new Director of St. Rita's Retreat & Conference Centre.  Fr. Romero is also the Parish Priest of The Holy Family Church in Honiton.  We wish him joy and happiness in both of his new roles.
