Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the St. Catherine of Siena website. It is my prayer that you will find what you need here, whether you accidentally stumbled upon our website, you are searching for Mass times, ministry information, or an answer to some question about our faith.
It is also my prayer that each one of you feels welcome at St. Catherine of Siena, no matter your situation in life. A parish, after all, is about much more than buildings. As Pope John Paul II so eloquently wrote in his Apostolic Exhortation on the Laity: “The parish is not principally a structure, a territory or a building, but rather ‘the family of God, a fellowship afire with a unifying spirit,’ a ‘familial and welcoming home.’”
I fervently hope St. Catherine of Siena truly is your welcoming home. I pray you will feel the spirit of Christ that is so alive and abundant here, not only in the buildings but in the people you meet.
If ever you need to speak with me about anything, feel free to call me at (504) 835-9343.
Sincerely in the Lord,
Rev. Ronald L. Calkins,
