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.
Advent Taize—A candlelit evening of song, silence, and prayer in the church on Wednesday, December 11, 7 p.m. Through the gentle repetition of simple song refrains, the reading of scripture, and the silence of our individual prayers, we are able to transcend the distractions of our everyday lives and dwell on God as we prepare for the birth of his Son. Come enjoy the peace
2013 Christmas Giving Project —For this year's Christmas Giving Project, we will be collecting money to benefit our "Neighbors in Need" as well as "The Malta House of Care" mobile medical van as we did last year. Beginning this weekend, Christmas trees in both entrances of the church will be adorned with envelopes. Return the envelope either in the weekend collection baskets at church, the parish office or by mail.
