The St. Catharine Parish Center will accommodate banquets, wedding receptions and lecture functions for seating up to 400 people.
The Adoration Chapel is a Eucharistic devotion whereby members of our Parish unite in the adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament.
The St. Catharine of Siena Parish Community is growing…in a big way. Our parish is blessed to be experiencing an increase in new families joining our parish community and an increase in parishioner participation in our ever-growing list of Parish Ministries. In the past few years, we have added and expanded many new and growing ministries that serve every aspect of our parish life. Alpha, Symbolon, That Man is You, Walking with Purpose, our Hospitality Ministry, our Bereavement Committee, Marriage and Family Life, Respect Life, Little Saints, Care on Call, St. Vincent de Paul, and many more ministries help us to serve and grow in our Catholic faith and bring us closer to Jesus. Combined with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Knights of Columbus, athletic programs and school programs, our facilities are “bursting at the seams”.
Over a year ago, Father Dury met with Ministry Leaders, School Administrators and Parishioners to explore solutions to address our severely limited meeting, classroom and preschool spaces, as well as our site and physical plant issues. Those conversations have lead us to envision a project that will expand and improve our facilities at St. Catharine including the creation of a new uplifting Adoration Chapel; a new Parish Center with reception/meeting spaces, kitchen and storage areas; a new Prayer Garden; additional classrooms for St. Catharine School and a new Preschool in the renovated former convent building.
The project will be funded through a capital campaign entitled “For God’s Glory”. That’s where you come in! Please consider your role in bringing this project to life with your support of this campaign and your contribution For God’s Glory!
On Sunday June 3, 2018, our parish was doubly blessed on the Feast of Corpus Christi as Monsignor David Sorohan celebrated his final public mass at St. Catharine.
In his final Homily at St. Catharine, Monsignor reminded all of us that “we are on Holy Ground right here at St. Catharine.” The Mass attracted 8 Masters of Ceremony, an Honor Guard by the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, and a 6-piece brass section that Monsignor remarked “sounded like the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.”
After our Corpus Christi procession, we proceeded to the Lower Level of the Church, where Fr. Dury made a very special proclamation:
“On behalf of our “For God’s Glory” Campaign Committee, I am honored to present Monsignor Sorohan with this framed rendering of our new parish center which we will name “The Monsignor David V. Sorohan Parish Center”. His legacy will thrive at St. Catharine’s for many generations to come!”
