As the Parish of Saint Catherine of Siena we are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ. In communion with our Archbishop and the Roman Catholic Church throughout the world, we proclaim the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and His Gospel.
Through our life of worship, we acknowledge our need for the love and mercy of God and we welcome all to share in them. Through our ministries and service, we seek to form our members more deeply as disciples of Jesus and to make present, in our own times, the love and peace of the dawning Kingdom of God.
