Dear St. Catherine Parish Family,
As we continue to suffer the impact of the Coronavirus, I wanted to update you on some additional measures I have decided to take to ensure that we are responding appropriately.
I have decided to close our parish offices until further notice, effective today. However, our parish staff will be checking voicemail and email regularly to respond to requests for assistance as they come. Fr. Valery and I will still be taking individual appointments for Confession or other matters; however, we will try to meet with individuals outdoors if at all possible. Contact information for our staff can be found on our website at www.stcatherinercc.org/contact-us.
In order to reduce the risk of spreading germs and limit the amount of space our facilities staff will need to disinfect regularly, I will be closing down the main church. St. Joseph’s chapel (the smaller chapel located to the left as you enter the main doors to the narthex) will remain open, however, during the previously posted hours (8:00am-4:00pm each day – and until 8:00pm on Wednesdays) for those who wish to come to pray privately before the Blessed Sacrament. We will leave the doors of the chapel open, and we will also add additional chairs outside the chapel in the narthex to ensure that individuals can maintain proper social distancing while coming to pray.
Live Stream Masses, Stations of the Cross, and Rosary
We will be live streaming Masses in English Monday-Friday at 11:30 each day and 10:15am on Sundays. (Daily live stream Mass times in Spanish will vary. On Sundays, Mass will be at 1:30pm in Spanish.) We will also be live streaming Stations of the Cross each of the remaining Fridays in lent at 6:00pm in Spanish and 7:00pm in English. Additionally, Fr. Valery and I will live stream the praying of the rosary each week at varying times.
