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
outstanding spiritual treatises.
Saint Catherine was canonized
Her Feast occurs on April 29.
During this week we call holy we journey with Christ from triumph to condemnation, through death
to new and eternal life. We individually begin that journey in baptism when we are joined to Christ
and his living body in this world, the Church.
The liturgies of Holy Week are among the most ancient and most beautiful that the Church has to
offer, and they allow us to join those Christians who, for two thousand years, have commemorated
the dying and rising of Christ.
As we come to the end of our one hundredth anniversary year, we once again celebrate the core
mysteries of our Catholic Christian faith. With grateful hearts we thank God for enabling us to
continue as a community of faith, fully grounded in hope, a community that strives to manifest the
love of God and neighbor, in charity and service.
A special word of thanks to all who make Holy Week a beautiful experience for us all: musicians,
servers, those who have decorated the church, readers, minsters of the Eucharist, ushers,
sextons. Thank you so much!
May the ancient Christian greeting,
Christ is risen!
Christ is truly risen!
continue to echo in our hearts and lives.
