Pastor’s Current Projects
Parishioners and friends of St. Catharine- St. Margaret Parish Family frequently ask if there is any way they are able to “help” the parish. We always encourage anyone able to volunteer their time and talent within the parish, however some people are either not able or would like to make a monetary contribution instead.
Below is a listing of “projects” currently happening in the parish. We are extremely grateful for all of the generous contributions that come in throughout the year, we would not be able to assist as many people as we do without your support.
If you are looking to make a donation in memory of a loved one, as part of a bequest or would like contribute toward one of these projects please contact us for more information and to make arrangements.
Donations can also be made to the parish specifically for St. Catharine School, a link to their website can be found HERE
Faith in our Future
The parish core leaders have resumed meeting after the Christmas holidays. The team is planning to meet every other week for the next few months.
The goal of the program is to explore ways in which parishes of the Diocese can: 1. Share more resources with each other and with parishes in need 2. Avoid unneeded duplication of services; and 3. Fill in the gaps where service and ministry have not been available.
Currently the St. Catharine-St. Margaret team is preparing for a self assessment of the parish which will highlight what we do well and what we need to improve. This is a process that the whole parish needs to be involved in. In the weeks ahead, we will be asking the members of the parish to express their views and perceptions of the parish through a questionnaire.
A town hall type meeting will also be scheduled for discussion and input from members of the parish. The following members of the parish have agreed to serve as core leaders in conjunction with the pastor: MaryAnn Christopher, Maureen Martin, Mary Lou Oliva, Rich Diver.
