Welcome!

Dear Friends,


I hope you’ll feel very much at home at St. Catherine’s. We are very glad you are here!


The  Parish of St Catherine of Siena is a warm and welcoming community of  faith for everyone – both for our longtime parishioners, as well as our  visitors and newcomers.  We invite everyone into a living and saving  friendship with the Lord Jesus Christ, in the communion of His One,  Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.


We warmly welcome anyone  who is new to our area, anyone who is searching for the truth, or anyone  who is looking for a spiritual home. We are joyfully and faithfully  Roman Catholic in belief and practice - a community of faith, worship,  service, and formation.


The Parish Office would be happy to help  you with registration information, or to answer any questions.  Give us a  call (203-377-3133) or just stop by.  Our office hours, and a listing  of our parish staff can be found in the helpful links below. Also, feel  free to contact me personally, either at the Parish Office, or stop me  after Mass to say hello.


And, once again, welcome!


God bless you!
Father Marcello
