ADULT ALTAR SERVER TRAINING! We need you! If you are interested in becoming an Altar Server, please RSVP to Ms. Karen Utz at jutz@optonline.net to attend our next training session on Tuesday, September 27, 6-8 pm in the main church. Attending VIRTUS training is also required to be an adult altar server. Please register at https://www.virtus.org for the Saturday, October 8, 9:00 am - 12:00 noon VIRTUS training session in the parish hall with Deacon Dan.

Fall Harvest Fest - Please come join us on Sunday, October 2, from 11:30-2:30 for our parish picnic. Hosted by the Ministries of St. Catherine of Siena, the event will be held in the church’s back parking lot. There will be plenty of food, music and fall-themed activities. All are welcome. Please bring any extra or unwanted coats for our Fall Coat Drive. 

October 4, Tuesday is St. Francis of Assisi’s Feast Day. Since he is the Patron Saint of Mother Nature, animals are also attributed to him, hence we are going to have the blessing of Pets at 6 PM, in the Church’s Parking Lot, weather permitting.

St. Vincent de Paul Society food drive runs through November 11 specifically for Thanksgiving food baskets to benefit local families in need. Non perishables, i.e. canned soups, vegetables, tuna fish, peanut butter, jellies, spaghetti sauces, pasta, cereal, boxed milk, etc. are needed. Please check expiration dates. Grocery store gift cards are also appreciated. Thank you for your donations and know that you are doing God's work in helping others. 

We're still working on the Password Protected Online Parish Photo Directory and we need your help. Go to Parish Photo Directory on the website and Sign up Online to let us know what information you will allow in this directory. Names and addresses of all parishioners will be included in the directory unless you opt out. If you prefer, there is also a Downloadable PDF File that you can complete and return to the office or put in the collection basket. Photos can be submitted to photodirectory@sienachurch.org or use that same email address to discuss when you would like to have your picture taken, no charge. We will be taking pictures at the Fall Harvest Fest on October 2nd if you would like to do it then.

Faith to Move Mountains Graphic

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.
