This past Sunday at the 11 AM Mass, five children from our parish celebrated the Sacrament of First Eucharist. Gabriel, Karina, Nevaeh, Javier, and Marie have been preparing for weeks under the guidance and teaching of their parents and their teacher, Ms. Colleen Ryan. Their love of Jesus and their desire to live the life He wishes for them has grown in abundance. Please continue to keep these young girls and boys in your prayers as they continue to grow in their faith and thank you for all the prayers you have already raised up to the Lord in their behalf. 

(From L to R, Front Row: Karina, Javier, Marie, Nevaeh, and Gabriel) From L to R, Back Row: Mrs. Lakatos, Deacon Leonard, Fr. Kerner, and Ms. Ryan

Fr. Kerner and I have begun to discuss our plans for next year and catechists and current volunteers will be meeting soon to review this year and begin planning for next year. Registration will open on August 1st. Watch for information in the church bulletin, our parish website, our parish Facebook page, your emails and coming by snail mail. Please remember that parents with children, age 4 through grade 8 are encourage to register. Preparation for Reconciliation and 1st Eucharist requires completion of 1st grade Faith Formation as well as enrollment in the 2nd grade Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation classes. Preparation for Confirmation requires completion of Faith Formation for all years prior to 7th grade and Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation classes for 2 years (7th and 8th grade.) If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at or by calling the parish office. 

Parents of high school students and recent Confirmandi at neighboring Catholic schools, please send in your child’s picture along with details of their Confirmation or graduation, and a note granting permission for the publication of the picture in our parish bulletin. Your St. Kateri family wishes to celebrate your accomplishments with you. No matter where you are attending school or where you may be headed, St. Kateri will always be home. And just to warn you, if you don’t send it in, Fr. Kerner is planning on drawing a picture of you and making up the information!

Lastly, thank you to the students, parents and catechists for your lovely gift. It was a true surprise and I know I will be enjoying the pampering very soon. God bless you for your support, your generosity and your thoughtfulness.
