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.



Our Advent morning of reflection will be held on December 1 from 9AM to 11:30AM in the Pastoral Center, facilitated by Angie Malmgren of Jesus House Prayer and Renewal Center. Theme is Waiting in Hope. We will reflect upon this liturgical season and what it reveals to us as we anticipate the coming of Christ not just 2000 years ago, but now, today, in our hearts! We are asked to turn our eyes not to the knots in our lives which entangle us in anxiety and fear, but to a future which can be revealed as we WAIT IN HOPE! Our opening and closing prayers will be from the Pope’s favorite Novena, “Mary, Undoer of Knots.”

Angie Malmgren is mother of 4, grandmother of 10, great-grandmother of 6 with 3 more on the way. She holds a Masters Degree in Pastoral Care & Counseling, with certification in Spiritual Direction from Neumann University. She was Pastoral Associate in her parish for 5 years, and for 37 years was Co-Director, with her husband, Christian, of Jesus House Prayer & Renewal Center. 

Dear Parishioners,

It is Monday, Oct 12, and I am finally home from the hospital.  I am receiving home nursing and therapy care as well as TLC from Marie.  Our days are a little hectic but if you wish to pay me a visit, please call first.  I just wanted to say thanks for all your prayers and support during the 36 days in the hospital.  The three things I missed the most were and still are, daily Mass and Holy Communion, and my family at St. Catherine's.
Please feel free to call me at any time.  I won’t be going anywhere.  They are forecasting that I will be receiving a prosthesis probably in Dec or Jan.  In the meantime my wheelchair and I are becoming inseparable.  We go everywhere together.  If the weather permits I hope to be at 10:30 Mass this Sunday.  If so be sure to stop and say hello after Mass.
Deacon Francis



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
