Have you ever wanted to know more about all of the good work done by so many of our parish organizations and ministries? Have you been looking for a way to become more involved in the life of the our parish community, but aren't sure which ministry is right for you?
We invite you to stop by our Parish Hall on the weekend of September 10 and 11, 2016 after all masses for our annual Ministry Fair - Serving God from the Heart.
Come and explore the numerous ministries offered at St. Catherine of Siena as each ministry will have a booth with a representative available to describe the nature of the ministry that they coordinate for the good of the parish.
The Core Team members from St. Catherine’s have met with their counterparts from St. William the Abbott and St. Veronica's. Together, the three parishes make up Cohort 11, and are one of 25 cohorts across the diocese that have been tasked with making recommendations with regards to ongoing structure and operations of the parishes in each respective Cohort.
The location of the Priest Residence is off the back parking lot for the main church. Preparation has been to maintain the Church, Chapel and Rectory with minimal cost to the parish. All the maintenance over the past 3 1/2 years has been performed by the Buildings & Grounds committee without having to use outside contractors. These savings have helped bring about this project without requesting any funds from the parish. We have agreed to assist the builder to further reduce cost. If you are interested in joining the Buildings & Grounds committee, you can contact Joe Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all who have made a pledge to the Faith to Move Mountains Campaign! I have been truly humbled and blessed by your overwhelming generosity - we have raised $448,887 towards our goal of $580,000! I am so grateful for the support we have already received, but with a parish of nearly 1,000 families, I know we can count on more success. I hope that all of you will do what you can by making a sacrificial pledge for our parish and Diocese today. Thank you again to everyone who has so generously made a pledge and brought us closer to our goal! If you have any questions, please contact the parish office - Father Angelito.
