We have many different organizations here at St. Catharine Parish. Ministries in the parish are ways in which we use the talents God has given us to grow in holiness and to help in the mission of bringing souls to Christ. Please consider joining one!
A Connect Group is a mid-sized home group of varying numbers of people (8-10 on average). These groups are lay led and are places where parishioners are known, cared for and loved. Connect Group members gather for a pot luck meal, a time of prayer, a program through formed.org or evanglization.com, reflection and discussion. Connect Groups are relatively new to our parish and are now being formed.
Faith Formation Groups are groups that are focused on learning content. Unlike Connect Groups, they are temporary, only meeting to do a particular curriculum with no expectation beyond that. We encourage every parishioner to participate in at least one Faith Formation Group a year.
Ministries of Mercy focus on outreach to the poor, suffering and those forgotten by society.
Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies should utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations.
