Coffee with Crowley June 7th at 8:30 am

It is an absolute privilege for Home and School to host one last Coffee with Crowley as we say goodbye to our dear principal, Adria Crowley. We invite you all to stop in for a cup of coffee and breakfast treats as we gather to thank Adria for her tremendous service to SKS.   We are so grateful for all that she has given to our school community. She is such an inspiring educator, leader, mentor, and friend. She led by example, steadfast in faith and love. What a blessing to have had her as a teacher and principal here at SKS.

See you there,
Your Home and School Board

SKS Fall Classic
September 23, 2024

The SKS Fall Classic on September 23, 2024 is a tremendous opportunity to bring our entire SKS community together, while raising some significant dollars for the school!

The Fall Classic invite/registration is available here.

The day is a combination of events that start with a racquet outing at Overbrook Golf Club, a golf outing at St. Davids Golf Club, and a reception at St. Davids that evening.  It is open to all friends of SKS, which means we are casting our fundraising net beyond the current parents that includes alumni, alumni parents, and parishioners. All proceeds will go to benefit the school through the governance of the annual fund.  We have the capacity for 30 foursomes, around 50 racquets players, and 250 dinner reception tickets. Some portions of those categories have been pre-sold as part of larger sponsorships, so I strongly encourage anyone with interest to jump on the ticket information here to register.

Thank you for your continued support of SKS and we look forward to seeing you on September 23rd!

Find the Right Mass for You and Your Family with
Our
New Calendar

The Parish Plan committees are continuing their work to make St. Katharine’s a warm, welcoming community for worshippers of all ages. Along with our Family Masses (see block above), we’ve added two monthly Masses that will feature teen and young adult choirs, lectors and cantors, both at 5:00pm on Saturday. To help parishioners decide which Mass to attend, you will now find a calendar on our website that describes the focus and features of each service.

Thanks to the Liturgy Experience and Parishioner Engagement committees for helping to make our parish an even stronger community of faith!
