Saint Catherine Parish is celebrating 125 years as a vibrant parish community in the grace of Jesus Christ. Generations of faithful have been nurtured here at Saint Catherine’s. This sacred place has become for countless peoples a loving home, a beacon of light, and a bedrock of faith. Generations have come to experience here the divine life and love of God, in Jesus Christ, through a wonderful family of faith. From the baptismal font, to the reception of Holy Communion, to the love and joy of the sacrament of matrimony and to the tender care of those whom God has called back to Himself, the people of God have gathered and journeyed together in grace.
Saint Catherine Parish is the “alma mater” of so many who would go forth to serve God, family, and country. Many speak with fond appreciation of their experience of human and faith formation at Saint Catherine Parish. Generations have been enriched by the devotion and work of the school sisters and teachers of Saint Catherine School. All learned from the great classroom of the church, the hallowed benches, where faithful sat at the feet of the great teacher and shepherd, Jesus Christ. Many vocations to priesthood and religious life would rise up from Saint Catherine Parish to serve the Church the world over. Many more would live out the vocation of marriage and family life, strengthening the fabric of community life in Norwood and beyond.
We thank God for the goodness He has begun here and pray that He continue to prosper His loving work in the lives many generations to come.
Please join us in celebrating this grace filled life in our Lord.
Father Stephen S. Donohoe

“…To those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints with all who are invoking the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place… Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to God continuously for you because of the grace of God that has been given to you in Christ Jesus. By that grace, in all things, you have become wealthy in him… He too will strengthen you, even until the end, without guilt…” Introduction of First Letter of Saint Paul to Corinthians.
