Parish Development Ministries and Groups

Financial stewardship, pastoral leadership and communication infrastructures support everything we do as a community. We hope you will consider helping out in these areas.

Financial Council

The Financial Council serves as conscientious stewards of the generosity of our parishioners. The function of this ministry is to review diocesan financial and parish audit reports, whenever available and take appropriate action as required. Members meet with the pastor or administrator at least quarterly.

Office Assistants

Volunteers help the office staff with monthly and special event mailings. Duties include duplicating, folding material, stuffing envelopes and applying labels and postage. This work is accomplished during normal office business hours on an as needed basis.

Parish Historian

The aim of the historian is to encourage and facilitate the recording and preservation of significant past and current events in the history of St. Catherine's parish.

Parish Pastoral Council

Formed at the direction of the Diocese, the Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative group consisting of the pastor and selected members of the parish. Their function is to monitor and understand current opportunities facing the parish and opportunities to maintain and extend its vibrancy. The council acts as the pastor's sounding board and is involved with practical decisions of consequence resulting from investigation and reflection. It sets priorities, proposes practical solutions and sets benchmarks for measuring success in the parish's ministry.

Printable Materials

This ministry provides printed materials for Religious Education and parish needs. Experienced graphic designers provide that professional image for the parish.

Scrip/Gift Card Program

This program offers pre-paid debit cards for major area retail stores as a fund raiser. The parish currently realizes a 5% return on the face value of all the cards sold. The proceeds from this "no cost" fundraiser help to offset the charitable works of the parish. Volunteers are needed to sell the Scrip cards at all Masses. Cards are also available in the church office during the week. All parishioners are encouraged to participate in this ongoing fundraising effort.

Stewardship Committee

The main objective of the Stewardship Committee is to promote parish life and activities in our community. The committee works to encourage parishioners to commit their time, talent and treasure to God's mission through involvement in the Church. The committee also supports all functioning ministries and creates or retires ministries as the needs of the Parish evolve.
