Tour St. Katharine's
Thank you for taking the time to visit our church. Visiting a church for the first time for the celebration of Eucharist can be a little uncomfortable. You are probably wondering things like: What is the church like? Are the parishioners welcoming and accepting? Will it meet my spiritual needs?
We hope that after your visit, you leave with a favorable impression. And we look forward to seeing you soon in person.
† Getting here is pretty easy. Check our directions for help. Here are a few pictures to help you know what to look for.
† There are two parking lots behind the church. If they are full, you can park on any nearby street.
† The building is fully wheelchair accessible via an elevator and curb ramps. The hospitality ministers or parishioners will be glad to assist you.
† Everyone is welcome. We welcome people of all ages, races, nationalities, ethnic groups or whatever your place in life.
† First, the Mass times... we have a Saturday vigil Mass at 5pm and three Masses on Sunday at 8am, 9:30am and 11:30am. The 9:30 Mass has a children's liturgy and many families attend. Babysitting is also available at the 9:30.
† We have hospitality ministers at the entrances to greet you, to give you a hymn sheet and to help you find a seat. On the way out, they will give you a bulletin and offer a warm goodbye.
† There is plenty of seating available. Sit wherever you like, there aren't any reserved seats (except for the handicap row marked at the front of church and, occasionally, a pew or two will be roped off. Please avoid those.)
† St. Katharine's is blessed with a generous, responsive and caring community. We have a long and proud history of using our time, talent and treasure in reaching out to those in need, both within and outside the parish.
† If you are interested in finding ways to help others, there are always many opportunities to serve as we currently have over 900 volunteers engaged in some 48 ministries.
† And, if you are seeking an environment where you can learn and grow personally and in your relationship with God you'll find that at St. Katharine's. Our mission statement says "We, of St Katharine of Siena parish, believe that we have been gifted with life, faith and discipleship. Empowered by Jesus in word and sacrament, we are called to grow in wisdom and grace, fidelity to His Church, and in service to our brothers and sisters." More than just a statement on paper, it's our real focus.
† Our website may be informative, but we encourage you to come for a personal visit. Please contact the Rectory, (610) 688-4584 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.
