The Sunday Collection

As many of us still attend church virtually, we do not have the opportunity to contribute to the Sunday collection. However, parishioners can easily set up recurring contributions via Give Central.

Visit the link below to set up your recurring contribution. Donors can change the amount of the contribution or pause it at any time.

Ways to Support Our Local Small Businesses

For many years, our small business neighbor have been stalwart partners with St. Catherine through offering Eat & Earns, sponsoring SCA events and offering discounts when the school places orders. Now is the time for our SCA community to show our support of these amazing small businesses. Please take the time to visit the "live" buttons below, and, if you are able, support them.

If you know of an SCA family who owns a small business that we can publicize here to help support them, please reach out to me via email.

So Many On-going Ways to Support St. Catherine!
