Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at St. Catharine a great one!
Mass and Confession Times
Sunday Mass (The Lord's Day)
Saturday 5:00pm (Vigil) has been suspended as of June 7th, 2020.
9:00am (when school in session)
As of May 25th, Confessions will now be heard in the Church library and Baptistry located at the rear of the Church. No appointment is necessary.
If you are not feeling well, please stay home. This is for the health and safety of all. You are also asked to wear a mask during your confession. In addition, we ask that you do not use this opportunity for confession to seek counseling. If you need to speak with a priest about counseling on a particular issue in your life, please make an appointment to discuss this with him outside of the confession setting.

What can I expect?
How long is mass at st. catharine?
In total, a Mass at St. Catharine is about 60 minutes in length.
It is a traditional Catholic Liturgy that any Catholic would be familiar with. Most of the words of the Liturgy are in English, but you will also hear Latin, Greek, and Hebrew at St. Catharine.
If you are not Catholic and have never been to Mass, this Order of Mass will help you to become more familiar with what you will see and hear.
What's the culture like at St. catharine Church?
Sundays at St. Catharine are joyful, prayerful, and uplifting. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
What about my kids?
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me...for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
We believe that there is nothing more valuable for a family than attending Mass together every Sunday. Regular attendance at Mass will help children to recognize the sacred nature of the Eucharist and how central it is to our faith.
We understand that sometimes children can be prone to spontaneous outbursts, but don't worry, we think that is a reminder of the beauty of life and family! But if you feel like you need to step away we have a very large cry room in the east end of the Church.
As St. Teresa of Calcutta once said, "How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers."
