Faith Formation Ministries

Devotional Ministries provide an opportunity to deepen one's faith through personal and communal prayer.

Adult Friendship Ministry

This ministry provides an opportunity to meet people and engage in pleasant activities, which include monthly gatherings, prayer, social, educational and spiritual experiences as well as occasional day trip for our mature members.

Bereavement Ministry

This is a ministry of consolation at the time of death. Members are available to pray with the bereaved, to listen and offer friendship, comfort and support during the healing process.

Book Club

This is a group within the parish who gather during Advent and Lent to grow in their spiritual life through discussions centered on a pre-selected book of the faith. This club incorporates those who lead the discussion as well as those who participate in the discussion. Gatherings are usually held once a week at the church.


Monthly Religious Education Sessions are offered for our younger parishioners entering kindergarten through eighth grade. The Religious Education Program is looking for Confirmed Catholic Adults to join us as Catechists, Aides and Substitutes. Training and support are provided.

Men's Scripture Group

This ministry of St. Catherine's meets for prayer, fellowship and bible study. Topics range from Biblical subjects to men's issues to current ethical issues.

Respect for Life

As Christians, we are called to defend human life and to work for peace based on justice for all - born and unborn, young and old, sick and well. Our faith calls us to use "our everyday opportunities and responsibilities, our voices and votes to defend human life, human dignity, and human rights." Members teach about the sanctity of human life, help those in need, and advocate laws and policies that affirm human life.

Youth Ministry

All high school students are welcome to join the Youth Ministry. There are many social and service activities provided by this ministry. Participation in the Youth Ministry strengthens and affirms one's faith in God, provides opportunities to serve the community while gathering with other parishioners of high school age.

Family Mass

This family-focused Mass is held on the last Sunday of each month at 9:30 at the Parish Center. All parishioners are invited -- especially families of teens and young children, who will get to see fellow youth parishioners serve at Mass as Altar Servers, Ushers, Gift-Bearers, Readers, Refreshment Servers and eventually...contemporary music ministers. The Celebrant will present a Homily geared towards children to help them understand what is happening in the Mass and explain the Gospel readings at their level.
