The Parish Steering Committee sent a letter to all parishioners to provide an update on the recent survey to explore the feasibility of expanding the parish worship and other areas. The survey was distributed by email and at all Masses this weekend and outlines the committee's communication plan as well as the findings revealed by the survey, interviews and focus groups. More than 80% of active parish families participated in the study.

To recognize World Marriage Sunday, the weekend of Feb. 8-9, Fr. Chester led couples at all Masses in a renewal of their wedding vows. Several couples' wedding photos were on display at the church and Parish Center. After all Masses, parishioners were invited to compete in a game of "Who Is That Gorgeous Couple?"

Join us each Friday during Lent, beginning March 7th, for a Lenten Soup Meal in the Church Undercroft beginning at 6pm, followed by Stations of the Cross beginning at 7pm in the Church. During Stations, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered.
During Lent 2014 (March 5 through April 18), St. Catherine's is challenging parishioners to share their treasure with those in need by answering one simple question:
Can you spare one quarter (25 cents) to give to the Poor Box at every Mass you attend during Lent?
How much does one quarter count?
If 300 parishioners give one quarter per week, by the end of six weeks of Lent, we'd have $450 to donate to those in need....That's at least three week's worth of groceries for a family of four...or 45 boxes of diapers...or warm winter coats for eight children...or (you fill in the blank...it's your quarter!)
