Watch daily Masses from the Cathedral of St. Peter.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

ROCK LAKE PICNIC CANCELED It is with great sadness that we have decided to cancel the Rock Lake Picnic this year. In light of the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the St. Katharine Drexel Parish Finance Council and the Picnic Committee have made this difficult decision. We do not feel we could maintain the safety guidelines required to hold the picnic and keep our workers, parishioners, family, and friends safe. Thank you for your support in the past. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
The Parish Office will remain staffed but closed to the public from 10 AM to 2 PM. If you need to conduct business, please call the office. Please put items you are dropping off through the mail slot. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
