Youth Ministry Update

Next Meeting

Youth Ministry "Friendsgiving" Meeting

Sunday night, November 19th

From 7-8:30 PM in the Fr. Scheg Center

Please bring a food item to share at the meeting.

All are welcome!

Youth Ministry will be sponsoring the Giving Tree. We are inviting all parishioners to participate by purchasing a Christmas gift for someone in need.

Gift tags will be available this weekend, November 18th & 19th, and November 25th & 26th in the Gathering Space. Purchased gifts will need to be returned by the weekend of December 2nd & 3rd. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Bishop's Annual Catholic Appeal Update

The 2023 Bishop's Annual Appeal final outreach sent by the Diocese arrived in homes earlier this month. Thank you to those who have already made a gift to get our parish to $131,000, toward our goal of $155,000, for this year's Annual Catholic Appeal. If we raise another $24,000 to meet our goal, St. Catharine's will receive a $23,250 rebate from the Diocese.

St. Catharine's has an unusually large number of parishioners who donated to last year's appeal, but have not yet donated this year. If you would like to make a gift to help our parish reach our goal, please fill out a pledge card available in the church office or through me. 

Every gift helps us get closer to the goal. Gifts to the 2023 appeal are being accepted until 12/31/2023. Your support means the world to us - thank you for your consideration!  If you have any questions, please contact Bob Buus at 732-946-8615 or e-mail to
