  • weekend mass for the upcoming weeks

    In accordance with the diocesan guidelines on proper sanitation/church cleaning and to be prepared at each of our three churches, we will celebrate ONLY 2 weekend Masses in each church building. Please note that some groupings/parishes have decided to stay closed longer, because they are not prepared to open under the current guidelines.

    Our weekend Mass schedule is as follows:

    Saturday Masses

    St. Catherine's                      4:00 PM
    St. Margaret Mary                4:00 PM
    St. Joseph                              5:30 PM

    Sunday Masses


    St. Margaret Mary                 9:30 AM
    St. Joseph                               10:00 AM
    St. Catherine's                       10:30 AM

  • VACATIoN BIBLE SCHOOL

    Due to the circumstances and difficulties we are facing with the covid 19 spread, we feel it’s best at this time to cancel Vacation Bible School  June 8-11, 2020 for Grouping 327. Although this decision leaves us with a heavy heart, it is an important action needed to keep our families safe in our parish community.
  • interested in serving in a ministry?

    St. Catherine of Siena and St. Joseph parishes welcome any interest in volunteering for a ministry.  Training will be provided.  It's a great way to start getting involved with your church.

  • Return to Parish Life a Gradual Process. Your patience is appreciated.

    • For the weekend Mass, what to expect?
      *must go into church by the designated entrance.
       
    • Important Diocesan Guidelines?
      *must wear a mask and respect social distancing.
       
    • Guidelines for church capacity?
      *25% of church capacity while respecting social distancing.
      *Our Grouping will only have one Saturday Mass and one Sunday Mass at each Parish (St. Catherine, St. Joseph, St. Margaret Mary). Why? Temporarily dropping one Sunday Mass at each location due to Diocesan guidelines for sanitizing the churches after each Mass.
       
    • If the Church reaches capacity, what happens?
      *Parishioners will be asked to go to the church hall for additional seating and the availability of seeing the Mass live stream. If the hall fills to capacity, we will have no more available seating and must not go beyond Diocesan guidelines. If there are additional people outside, they cannot be admitted due to Diocesan guidelines.
