Parish Life/Hospitality

What We Do

St. Catharine’s Parish has many social events that build community, provide a chance to get to know one another better, and to invite others to join us. For further information about these events, watch the parish bulletin and our online calendar.  We encourage you to participate in parish events and to bring others with you!

Coffee/Donut Sundays provide parishioners an opportunity to gather after Mass in the spirit of fellowship.  They are held monthly from September through June in the parish hall after the 8:00 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 Masses.  Different ministries help with the set-up and clean up each month.

Parish Socials bring adults of all ages together for a night of “themed” entertainment, dinner and dancing in the spirit of community.  Look in our church bulletin in the early fall for information on our next social!

 Nursing Home Luncheons: St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween Luncheons allow us the opportunity to invite senior citizens from area nursing homes and senior centers to have a meal and entertainment in our Fr. Scheg Center.  We decorate festively and provide a hearty meal to our guests in the spirit of hospitality.
