The Katharine Konnection

       There is a place for everyone at Saint Katharine Drexel, and that is especially true regarding children on Sunday morning.  At both the 9:00 and 11:00 AM Masses, our four Children’s Ministries gladly accommodate children of all ages (as described on the bulletin cover).  The experience of Mass is not really oriented to younger children with shorter attention spans, and so we put a lot of parish effort into providing a special place where children of this age will feel welcome and can grow spiritually.  If you have younger children who become fussy during Mass (especially on Saturday evening) and make it difficult for other parishioners to hear God’s Word proclaimed, remember that Drexel Place (near Kate’s Café) in the narthex is reserved especially for you, where there is a TV screen and a large window for a visual connection with everyone else at Mass.

       Next weekend our Foundations of Faith core Faith Formation program starts on Sunday evening at 5:30 PM.    Being formed in God’s image is a life-long endeavor, and our mission as a parish is to support you in that effort, whether you are seven or seventy.  You are invited to join your fellow parishioners in continuing faith formation through the various programs being offered this fall.  Please register using the information available on our parish website.

       Our annual Italian Night (sponsored by Katie’s Ladies) is coming up on Saturday 23 September, so sign up in the narthex after Mass this weekend and next and bring the whole family.  Please note that tickets are discounted if purchased early, and that there is a family price available.

         Don’t forget when you come to church next weekend that our Environmental Stewardship ministry is collecting used pill/medicine bottles (clean and label-free) and old medical or dental X-rays at all Masses.  This group keeps coming up with new ideas to help us care for the God-given gift of creation!
