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.
Monday-Friday: 9:00am - 1:00pm
Now recruiting Parish volunteers!
We have a decent roster of volunteership among at our parish, but we would like to expand so that our celebrations of Mass always have the full support the Lord deserves. We invite you to consider volunteering for the following positions:
- Lectors (reading the liturgy of the word)
- Altar servers (at any age)
- Sacristans (preparing the gifts, linens, and liturgical items before Mass)
- Eucharistic ministers
- Musicians (will need to interview with Music Director)
If you would like to volunteer in any capacity, please contact the parish office or speak with Father Danny after Mass, or whenever you see him.
Help with Religious Education
We are hoping to restart the religious education program for First Communion and Confirmation. We are in need of teachers who can provide their time and faith to teaching the next generation about the love of Jesus and the importance of faith in their lives. Please contact the parish office or Fr. Danny if you would like to sign-up to teach, -or- sign up your child for classes.
Father Danny also would like some input and advice on how the program has been run in the past, and how it can be run going forward to increase its success and better benefit the students and community. Thank you!
Attending Mass with us:
> We encourage walking and car-pooling as much as possible due to limited parking at and around the church. Please be mindful of nearby residents and city regulations about vehicle parking.
> Parking is available at the curbs around the church and in the church parking lots on Lower Terrace Road and in the back parking lot of the church. PLEASE do not block any exits, pathways, or driveways.
> We request members of the congregation to turn their cell phones on silent mode or off while attending Mass. During visits outside of Mass, please maintain reverence and be mindful of other visitors using the peace and quiet for prayer and reflection.
> Lost and found items are usually turned in to the sacristy. Please contact the parish priest or a parish volunteer to retrieve a lost item. If you return outside of Mass times, please call the church phone number to get access to the lost & found.
> After the 9:00AM Sunday Mass, we welcome you to join us for coffee, juice, and light snacks in the courtyard provided by our volunteers. A donation jar is usually set up and all monies go directly to supporting parish operations.
