St. Catherine of Siena is the
Patron Saint of Italy and a
Doctor of the Church.

She was born Catherine
Benincasa in Siena in 1347.  At
an early age, she joined the
Third Order of Saint Dominic in
which she gained a reputation
for great sanctity.  Recognizing
her holiness and wisdom, many
followed her leadership in her
devotion to the poor.  She
labored incessantly and with
fiery zeal for the unity of the
Church and was a devoted
champion of the Papacy.

She died in Rome in 1380 after
a remarkable life, leaving a
legacy of
outstanding spiritual treatises.

Saint Catherine was canonized
in 1461.

Her Feast occurs on April 29.

the major renovation of our Church and Parish Hall,

using your talents to help us take this important next step in renewing our Parish
and I strongly encourage you to complete and return the requested forms that were
mailed to you this week.  If you need additional information and forms please use the

We are excited to announce that this summer we are
considering hosting KIDSHINE at St. Catherine’s. They will
provide a fun-filled, weeklong, performing arts day camp
(from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.) for kids entering grades 3 through
8. The camp culminates with an hour long original musical
performed on Friday night.  At least one of our families has
attended the camp in another location and has provided
rave reviews!  The cost would be between $175 - $200 for
the week.
Please take a look at their website (under day camps) to learn more about the
program and to see camper photos.

In order to run the program, we would need 50 campers.  If you think you would be
interested, it would be very helpful if you would let us know by emailing us at or calling us at 203-637-3661 x330.
