To all of the good people and friends of St. Catherine of Siena Parish,

Over the past few weeks, I have shared how the Faith to Move Mountains Campaign will strengthen our Diocesan schools and parishes, support our clergy and seminarians, care for our retired priests, enhance our religious education and evangelization programs, and expand our social service outreach. 

In addition to these projects, St. Catherine of Siena has been invited to raise a minimum of $580,000, of which we will receive 30% ($174,000) to address our own local needs listed below:

    St. Catherine of Siena Church Building ($150,000)

  • The three large air-conditioning units are 20 years old and need to be replaced.    
  • The three small air-conditioning units are also 20 years old and need to be replaced.    
  • The lighting inside and outside of the church needs to be changed to LED lighting, which has a lifespan of 22 years, and costs significantly less to operate.    

    Chapel ($4,000)

  • The bathroom in the chapel needs to be renovated/replaced.      
  • Funds will go towards enhancing the lighting for the walkway outside of the chapel. 
  • A new front door will replace the current door to the chapel.         

    Rectory ($20,000)

  • The current rectory is over 50 years old, and has many maintenance issues that need to be addressed.   

As we move forward with this campaign, it is my hope that our entire community will join together and participate in this blessed effort for our Diocese and our parish. I encourage all of you to pray for our success and participate to what your means allow for the future of our Church, as everyone will soon have the opportunity to support this graced endeavor. As has been proven so many times, here at our wonderful Spirit-filled community of St. Catherine of Siena, when you give it away, you get it back a hundredfold.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support!

God bless,
Father Angelito
