7/13 NEW BLOG POST about family, Church doctrine, homosexuality, and the homosexual union
"Far more central is the words of Jesus in John 15: “Love one another as I have loved you…There is no greater love than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friend…”  Here is the heart of the Gospel, the end point of “you shall love God above all things… and your neighbor as yourself”.   It is the whole Christian life. And it centers on the relationship of one-to-one in love."
 Blog posts can be found at the Pastor's Desk  What are your thoughts?

Many of you asked for Fr. Peterman's Homily on the history of the Catholic Church.  His homily, titled "Why We Are Roman Catholic" can be found here.

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
