ST. CATHERINE FALL STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE 

Every year at this time, we are asked to think about our stewardship of all the gifts that God has placed in our trust. Not just how we are taking care of those gifts, but how we are sharing those gifts with our parish and our community as well. In the coming weeks we will be asked to consider if we are returning a proper portion of those gifts to our Church for the Lord to build up His Kingdom. Next Sunday we will be hearing from one of our parishioners about how God has blessed them and why they chose to share their blessings.

You can make your pledge online at this link:      STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE FORM

Please make your pledge!

but the Church does advocate for public policies that serve the common good and are aligned with Church teachings. When considering political candidates' views on public policies, we recommend reading Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, published by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). For more information on public policy issues and guidance from the bishops, visit the Washington State Catholic Conference website [wacatholics.org]

Thanksgiving is coming soon!  St. Catherine’s St Vincent de Paul group is planning to provide approximately 34 neighbor families with the resources to plan, shop, prepare and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.  To do this simply and safely, we want to provide each family with a voucher to purchase groceries at a local store.  The voucher amount will be based on $25 per person, so a family of four would receive a $100 voucher.  Want to help? Click below or go to the front page of the parish website and click the box marked “SVDP Holiday Program” to give whatever amount you choose. Your donation will be acknowledged on your St. Vincent de Paul contribution statement.   It would help a lot to receive your donation by November 5thThanks for your help providing over 120 adults and children with a meal of their choice for Thanksgiving.
