Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 4th at 6pm to Celebrate the Feast of St. Francis, the Patron Saint of Animals. We will gather on the field in front of the church and each animal will be blessed. We will also offer a group prayer and blessing to celebrate our love and respect for all of God's creatures. The blessing is open to all animals & their people, rain or shine!

Blessing of the Animals

Family Promise – Can You Help? St. Catharine is hosting families in the Ministry Center for two weeks from October 2-16.  These families are part of the Family Promise network and are experiencing homelessness – something many of us can’t even fathom. There are a few volunteer opportunities still open: • Evening volunteers, 7-9pm each evening • Cleanup, Sun. morning, Oct.16

To volunteer in any capacity, go to www.signupgenius.com. At the top of the page click “Find Signups” and enter psbiggs@optonline.net for the email of the creator. Then enter the random code as directed. Not good with the computer but still want to sign up? Want more info? Contact Pam Biggs at psbiggs@optonline.net or call 201-670-8760.
