$1.00 Dress Down for Pediatric Cancer

On Thursday, September 27, St. Catherine will be having a dress down day for pediatric cancer. Our kindergartner, Marty Brogan, and so many other kids in our

community have faced this terrible disease. We are asking each student to

bring $1 to donate to the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

October Mass Count

During the month of October, the Archdiocese asks each parish to submit a count of attendance at all Saturday and Sunday masses. Please make a concerted effort to attend Mass as a family. Hopefully, we can continue

this habit throughout the year.

Saturday and Sunday September 22nd and 23rd back of church after all masses


Anyone over the age of 18 can volunteer.

--Our Lady of Fatima Knights of Columbus will have a pop-up camper just south of Andy’s ice cream in the parking lot. Go to the camper and check-in.  Tell them that you are with St. Catherine’s. They will give you a collection can, an apron and Tootsie Rolls.

--When your can is full, or when you’re leaving, go to the camper and give them your can.  They will put the money in St. Catherine’s container.

--100% of what we collect will go back to St. Catherine’s SPRED program.

--You do not need to call and schedule a time, you can just show up any time on Friday or Saturday and volunteer as long as you want.  There is no minimum or maximum time you can volunteer.

--If you can’t walk the corner and would still like to help out, we need volunteers at all of the masses on Saturday and Sunday in the back of church to collect as well.

Please call or email Ralph Soch for any details.  773-447-4434
