On behalf of our parish family and staff, I would like to welcome you to our parish. St. Catherine’s is a truly wonderful parish centered on the Eucharist and a life of stewardship and charity. We are blessed to have an extremely vibrant community with a number of ministries and programs for our children and adults. If you would like to learn about the history of our parish, you can see our parish history page, and if you would like to learn more about our parish identity and mission, you can see our identity and mission page. As with any parish, the health and success of our parish depends on active stewardship of time, talent, and treasure. If you have not yet officially registered with our parish, please click here to complete a registration form.
We have an active sacramental life and offer several Masses each day. We celebrate very reverent and beautiful traditional liturgies. If you are new, you may not be familiar with the Latin chant parts of the Mass that we use or the Latin Marian antiphons that we sing after communion. You can see our Latin Mass parts page to familiarize yourself with these. We also have perpetual Eucharistic adoration, and we provide several opportunities for the sacrament of confession each week.
We also offer various social, spiritual, and service ministries as well as a variety of religious education programs including our parish school of religion for our children and teens, and numerous Bible studies and catechetical programs for adults. Our parish also remains a strong presence in our community, particularly through our outreach efforts. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society, in particular, is able to do tremendous work with the poor and marginalized in our community. I would also encourage you to please review our parish bulletin and explore our website to find out about all the different ways to become active in the parish.
I would also ask you to consider making a commitment to regular sacrificial giving to the parish through our offertory envelopes or through our online giving service. If you requested to receive parish envelopes, you should receive them in the coming weeks; otherwise, you can sign-up for our online giving through our parish website. To find out more, you can visit our stewardship of treasure page.
Once again, I would like to welcome you to our parish family. If I have not met you already, please be sure to introduce yourself to me after one of our Masses. If there is anything I can do for you in the meantime, please feel free to contact me. Please be assured of my prayers for you and your family in my daily holy hour and Masses.
