THANK YOU TO THE HOT DOG CREW

Fr. Kerner and St. Kateri Parish would like to acknowledge the most generous donation to St. Kateri in the manner of Gift Cards. This wonderful donation was made by the Rousch Co. This “Crew” barbecues lunch every Thursday from April to November in the name of fundraising for local charities and groups. This year they donated to Operations Good Cheer, Toys for Tots, Church Pantries and an Animal Shelter. We truly thank them for their hard labors and their support to us. THANK YOU and may God bless all your labors.

IN GRATITUDE

I would like to express my sincere thanks for all the prayers and good wishes to my St. Kateri family and friends. They all helped me in my speedy recovery from surgery.

Sincerely,

Carmen Rodriguez

OUTREACH TO ST. KATERI PARISH MEMBERS

Good morning. My name is Pat Nesbitt from Florissant, Missouri. My newest granddaughter, Kateri Elizabeth was born five weeks early and is in need of many prayers. I am reaching out to you and your Church of St. Kateri for your intercession. She is getting better now, but needs prayers to gain weight for three days straight. She and her mom want to get home to the daddy and four other children.

God bless you for your prayers.

Pat.
