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.

A MEMORIAL MASS for PATTI OWENS will be offered here Monday, November 3, at 7PM. Patti was generous with her time as organist in our parish and many others, and in St. Mark’s High School productions. May she take part in the fulfillment in heaven of the liturgies she ministered in on earth. 

CYM SPORTS  All H.S. boys and girls, grades 9-12, interested in playing CYM Basketball should contact the Youth Office by November 5th. We would like to have both a boys and girls team. The cost is $100.00 per student all-inclusive. The season runs from December 1st to the end of February. If interested contact John Mazalewski at 302- 633-4909 or email stcathyouth@comcast.net. 

PARENTS OF THE PARISH, join our religious education families for a presentation series on ways to ramp up your parenting skills, bring God into your homes in simply ways, and share more time together as a family!  Nov. 5 & 12 (WEDNESDAYS) from 6:45- 8 in the church.  JOIN US.

Are you switching out your children's closets and would rather donate their clothes than store or consign them? St. Catherine's is starting a clothes closet for needy families! We are accepting donations of all children's clothing (newborn to size 12) in good condition. Please contact Nancy Ludlam at 302-463-6554 to arrange to meet and to drop off clothing or have it picked up.

MENTORING PROGRAMWe have as a parish a mentoring program this year to support children and teenagers in the educational part of their journey to adult responsibility. Some mentors will work within the Red Clay Public School system during school hours. Others will work through the students’ families in our parish.

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
