Beehive of Saint Rita

Logo Alveare di Santa Rita Each year, the Beehive of Saint Rita in Cascia hosts about 60 boys and girls in need of assistance and help. Young people with parents are unable to care of them full-time. For them, it aims to be a nest in which to grow serenely.

Founded in 1938 by Blessed Mother Teresa Fasce, the Beehive of Saint Rita is an integral part of the Monastery of Saint Rita of Cascia. Created as an orphanage, it is now home to children in need:

  • the Little Bees, girls aged between 6 and 18 years from all over Italy, who live day and night in the facility;
  • the Wildflowers, boys who grew up with their family near Cascia, hosted during the day from Monday to Friday, from after school until evening.

We nurture high hopes for our Little Bees and Wildflowers.
