Welcome to The Church of St. Catherine of Siena!
My dear friends,
Welcome to the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena!
Over the main door of the Church is engraved:
Domus Mea Domus Orationis Vocabitur Dicit Dominus
My House shall be called a House of Prayer, Says the Lord
These words of Jesus aptly describe the graced atmosphere one finds upon entering Saint Catherine’s. Here at the foot of the altar and the Shrines which surround the main altar, generations of the faithful have found strength and hope to live our Catholic faith and to face the difficulties of sickness and pain. May you find the same grace!
As a parish administered by the Order of Preachers (the Dominicans), Saint Catherine’s is distinguished by our unique call and challenge. Guided by our Holy Father Saint Dominic, and inspired by the life of our patroness Saint Catherine of Siena, may this community of faith become ever more completely a Church that leads people to a deeper communion with the Blessed Trinity, setting the world ablaze with Love.
Again, welcome to our Church!
Parish News & Updates
Calling all children from 4th to 8th grade: Do you want to praise God in your music? The Manhattan Catholic Children’s Choir is now auditioning new singers for its 2013-2014 season. The Manhattan Catholic Children’s Choir is an initiative of the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena to foster a love of music and the liturgy in Catholic children across Manhattan. Singers praise God through music at selected liturgies at Saint Catherine’s, at their home parish, in the annual Lessons and Carols celebration and at a special workshop with chant choirmaster Scott Turkington. Rehearsals are each Tuesday from 3:30-4:45 p.m. Choristers will learn the medieval notational system of neumes and sing the beautiful chant melodies found in the patrimony of the Catholic Church.
For more information, or to set-up an audition time, please contact Julie Woodin, Director of Manhattan Catholic Children’s Choir, at (212) 988-8300 x 186 or visit www.stcatherinenyc.org today!
