We do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, about those who have fallen asleep, so that you may not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose, so too will God, through Jesus, bring with him those who have fallen asleep.  ~ 1 Thessalonians

From The Pastor

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Last Wednesday morning we had a wonderful Saint Kateri School sponsored Veterans Day service and on Saturday, Veterans Day, there was a special offsite recognition of the late Major General Norbert Rappel, with a bench and a portion of Route 590 being dedicated in his memory. General Rappel was an active parishioner of Saint Kateri parish.

This weekend, we pray for all members who serve in our armed forces, especially our military service parishioners and for their parents and families.

My gratitude to all who have been so generous in giving to the needy and migrants in our area with donations of foods, socks, blankets, winter clothing and Christmas basket items. Thank you!

With winter fast approaching, you can see a frenzy of activity happening at the Saint Cecilia campus with development of a new senior living complex that will be called "Ellen's Place." The old rectory has been removed to provide space for new parking for the church and parish center.

For now, parking at Saint Cecilia church will remain a real challenge until we can add our additional parking spaces in the spring, but things will improve!

The final result should make for a beautifully landscaped campus that will benefit church parishioners and future senior residents.


May God bless them and you!

 Fr. Gonyo
