Loretta Cuccia provided the following report on this year's Parish Retreat, "Untying the Knots: Finding Peace in a Culture of Distraction:"
On March 30, Bill Donaghy's presentation at our Parish Retreat offered much needed reflection time on the personal, cultural and communal challenges of our times and how to give them over to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots. Bill used sacred art; scripture quotes; profound quotes; inspirational music; TV shows; and cartoons to illustrate how life's distractions can distance us from peace of mind and deep relationship with our God...if we allow them to.

Following this month's Town Hall Meetings, the Parish Building Steering is conducting a follow-up survey regarding the plans for the future of the Parish:
As you know, St. Catherine of Siena Parish retained Ruotolo Associates (RA), a non-profit consulting firm, to conduct a parish study. The results of that study indicated that the parishioners had some questions about the past and plans for the future of our parish.
We tried to address those questions through town hall meetings. The PowerPoint presentation and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) were then put on the website, emailed to all addresses in our database and the Questions and Answers were available in church and at the Parish Center. Read More.
Have you seen the floor plan of the proposed church expansion but still don't have a good grasp of what the change would mean to the existing church footprint? We created an interactive tool that lets you compare the current and proposed floor plan in one image. Just drag the slider from left to right to switch between the two renderings

The Parish Steering Committee hosted a series of Town Halls to discuss the results of the surveys, interviews and focus groups exploring the feasibility of expanding the current church building and other plans for the future of the parish. The committee also addressed questions raised during the process and facilitated a question and answer session with parishioners.
The presentation from the Town Halls is available for viewing on the Parish website, at www.scoschurch.org/townhall.
