First Week of Lent Sunday 21 February 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Spanish 6:30 p.m.

(Saturday vigil mass 5:15 p.m.)


Thanks to the Supreme Court and separation of Church and State First Amendment the right to worship shall not be limited by the Legislature and that includes the Governor and President.


Masses are inside with the heather on if needed. It has been going down to 45 degrees and the heat is needed to keep the older folks from getting pneumonia.


We have half of the benches blocked off and we would like you to use a face covering.


Catholics for lent make sacrifices. With the pandemic we already have a lot to suffer.  Maybe this Lent we should just be extra nice to others. Noah and his sons and their wives spent 40 days in the ship when it was raining but they had to wait a half of a year for the water to go down. We have been locked down and semi lockdown for a year. Are you suffering a lot? This might be our 40 days suffering with Jesus.


Please come back to Mass. There are few people and you can hear the mass outside in the patio. 

MISSION STATEMENT: We, the people of St. Catherine Church located in Santa Catalina Island, California, are called to be members of the body of Christ.
