“The parish is where the Church lives. Parishes are communities of faith, of action, and of hope. They are where the gospel is proclaimed and celebrated, where believers are formed and sent to renew the earth. Parishes are the home of the Christian community; they are the heart of our Church. Parishes are the place where God’s people meet Jesus in word and sacrament and come in touch with the source of the Church's life.”
U.S. Catholic Bishops “Communities of Salt and Light: Reflections on the Social Mission of the Parish,” 1993
Active membership in a parish provides people the opportunity to enrich their faith life through worship within a community. Parishioners may join the parish leadership to help carry out the parish mission. Parish social activities provide the community the opportunity to put their faith into action. Not only is a person’s faith life enhanced by active involvement within a parish, but the community is enhanced as a whole as well.
If you are a Catholic and would like to become a member of St. Catherine, you can do so in several ways. Registration takes place after Masses on the first weekend of every month. You can also stop in at the parish office during regular business hours. Or, call to make an appointment with one of our staff members.
