Welcome to Saint Catherine of Alexandria Catholic Church on Santa Catalina Island.
Saint Catherine's is open. Seating is available inside or in the courtyard during Masses. The Mass can be heard in the courtyard through our P/A system.
Our upcoming administrator!
We look forward to welcoming our new parish administrator, Fr. Danilo "Danny" Guinto!
At 57 (now 61, in 2022), Deacon Danilo Guinto is the oldest member of the Class of 2018. He thanked the “God of Surprises” for calling him to the priesthood.
One of the “stepping stones” that led him to discern his vocation was time spent feeding the homeless with the Missionaries of Charity.
“I never thought that committing myself to this ministry would eventually lead me to reflect on being called to the priesthood,” said Guinto, who is originally from Manila, the Philippines.
He also credited his special devotion to his guardian angel for helping him answer that call to minister in the City of Angels.
“Pope Francis told us that ‘mercy is real; it is the first attribute of God,’ ” Guinto said. “As a priest, I look forward in making mercy real, palpable and present in the lives of the people that I am called to serve.” (from angelesnews.com)
Father Danny will celebrate his first official Mass with us on Friday, July 1 at the 8AM daily Mass. He will also celebrate weekend Masses going forward. We will still look forward to welcoming our regular visiting clergymen, known as the "boys of summer."
