Prayer & Worship
The celebration of the liturgy is central to the life of our community. It is “the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fount from which all the Church’s power flows” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 1963). We are strengthened for service to our community and our world by prayer and especially by the celebration of the Eucharist. Our ministry in the name of Jesus draws us ever more fully to prayer and praise.
The Second Vatican Council called the whole Church to reflect on the role of the laity in the Church. It reminded us that all Christians, by virtue of their baptism, are called to spread the gospel, to continue the work of building the Kingdom of God, and, most especially, to offer worship. St. Catherine Parish provides all parishioners with the opportunity to regularly celebrate vibrant, faith-enriching liturgy, Liturgical training, spiritual formation, and theological education. All parishioners are invited and encouraged to share their talents and interests with the community by becoming involved in a liturgical ministry.

"God has bestowed upon his people the gift of song. God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source. Indeed, God, the giver of song, is present whenever his people sing his praises." - Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship, paragraph 1
Music ministry is an important part of the Liturgical life of our parish. Just as Mother Church earnestly desires that all the faithful should be led to full, conscious, and active participation in liturgical celebrations rightly demanded by the very nature of liturgy, it is also calls on individuals to participate in music ministry so that these celebrations may be enhanced.
