Summer improvements at our beautiful Church!https://stmarystcatherine.org/wp-content/themes/osmosis/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 St. Mary St. Catherine of Siena St. Mary St. Catherine of Siena https://stmarystcatherine.org/wp-content/themes/osmosis/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg
When you enter the Church next weekend, things will look different as we prepare the front vestibule for the statues of our Patronesses, Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Catherine of Siena. The rug on the stairs will be removed, stairs leveled and painted, and a new rug will replace the tired one that is currently there. Following this work, pedestals will be built that will accommodate the two statues.
The week of August 8, work will begin in our sanctuary! The thirty plus year old carpet will be removed and the floor underneath will be restored and refinished. If all goes well, this work should take about three weeks from start to finish. We will continue to celebrate Mass in the upper Church, but things will just be moved around a little bit.
If anyone has any questions or comments about these projects, or any others, please feel free to call or email me.
Wishing everyone well and praying that all this rain will give way to a beautiful August.
Blessings to all,
James Santosuosso, Business Manager

The Letter to the Ephesians urges us to be mindful that part of our life together in the Eucharist means being kind to one another, compassionate and forgiving, just as Christ has forgiven us. What can we do this week to show our kindness, compassion and forgiving attitude toward others in our family of faith? How can we be even better stewards of our faith community as, what St. Paul refers to as “Imitators of God?”
