Welcome to St. Catherine of Siena Parish!

QUICK UPDATES - Please see our UPCOMING EVENTS Section and the Sunday bulletin for a full list and more details about the announcements below.

Hello Everyone, I am here in the Holy Land where Jesus walked, with wonderful people including Hal Giacomini, from our parish, on this pilgrimage.  We are in Jerusalem. We have visited Calvary, the Holy Sepulchre, Gethsemani.  In Galilee we have visited Cana, Nazareth, and the seaside towns where Jesus called the Apostles, preached, and healed.  We were on the Sea of Galilee, and went to the Mount of the Transfiguration.  I intend to remain 6 days, to walk the hills and fields of Galilee, and meditate on what happened there, and see what Jesus saw: the fields of grain, the sheep, the lilies of the field, and the shores of Galilee. And of course, I pray for you all. 

Some photos are enclosed of our sail on the Sea of Galilee, note the storm approaching; of the baptism of one of our pilgrims, Rodolfo; and of myself with our Guatemalan friends Fathers Toribio and Silverio, Sr. Ann Dailey, and Fr. Chris Posch, overlooking Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives.  It has been a very heartwarming trip for the 38 of us (19 from Wilmington). I am looking forward now to a prayerful week in Galilee, and you will be in my prayers.

Father John Hynes

Welcome to St. Catherine of Siena Parish!

We seek to be a welcoming community.  We invite you to make this your spiritual home, whether you are a longtime parishioner or occasional visitor.   We hope that our web site will provide you with infomation needed to inspire, encourage, or just make you more informed about who we are and what we represent.  It is a normal thing for God's people to rejoice with those who rejoice and to weep with those who weep.

Although we began as a parish in 1960, we - - the Catholic people - - have been here in Delaware since the early 18th century, before our state and our country or our diocese.  Not far from here is the Coffee Run Cemetery, where these forbearers in the Faith are buried:  Father Kenny, Cornelius and Sally Holahan, and many more.  And we have a mission for today, to be leaven and salt in our society, our country and our schools.

Come join us if you are already not a registered member.  Come and share and worship with us as a faith filled comunity.  Take a look around and see if you can be part of us.  Stop in to say hello, and stay with us.

Father John Hynes, Pastor
