St. Catherine's Youth

St. Catherine's Preschool

The Good Shepherd and the Child (Catechesis)

From our Volunteer Coordinator

Numbers do count!

Coordinator of Volunteer Ministry: Pat Pepper

We live in a world of ratings, and numbers are frequently a strong indicator of how successful something may be. I have heard a few people in ministry say that numbers don’t measure success of an event/program/activity. There are good examples when I would agree and say yes, numbers don’t matter.

However there are times when I would definitely say numbers are important, and that is when we are counting the number of volunteers that are involved in a ministry. Let me share with you a few of those important numbers at St. Catherine's:

12 Vestry members
12 Conveners
50 Ministry committee leaders
34 Chancel Choir members
16 Choristers
6 Cherub Choir members

And added to those numbers are: Catechists, Youth Formation Teachers, Youth Adult Leaders, Adult Formation Teachers, Ministry Team members, Young Families Ministry, dozens and dozens of Outreach volunteers, and many more.

One of my 2019 goals is for those numbers to increase, and to add new names to that current list. Call me if you need information about where you can add your name.

With gratitude for all of those volunteers that give hundreds of hours in ministry,

Pat

Vestry 2019

Over the weekend of February 1-3, the St. Catherine's Vestry along with Mother Sarah and serveral staff members gathered on retreat at Montara Farm in North Georgia. This weekend was a time of getting to know each other more, making plans for the upcoming year and time spent in prayer. Photos courtesy Frankie Bowden; warden portraits by Jan Potter.

Cats On Wheels

February 16 activity change!

This month our plan is changed! Instead of an outing to Georgia Ensemble Theater, we will gather for a pay-your-own lunch at 11:30 am at Los Arcos Mexican restaurant, 3101 Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30062, at the corner of Old Canton and Roswell Road. So that the restaurant can arrange a big table and have staff to serve us, please RSVP to Alan Certain, st.cats.on.wheelsgmail.com, 404-661-2200 as soon as possible.

Cats On Wheels is our fellowship group for active senior adults and we welcome you! If you are old enough to be eligible for an AARP card (though no card is needed!) and have an adventurous spirit, you are invited to join this lively group of folks with life experiences for monthly lunches and outings to places of interest throughout the year.


Blood drive - Tuesday, February 19

Start 2019 by doing good... Give blood! The Red Cross Blood Drive truck makes its next stop at St. Catherine's from 3 to 7 pm in the Youth House. Making an appointment is easy: call 1-800-RED-CROSS or go to www.redcrossblood.org and enter Sponsor Code STCATS to sign up for available times. BUT... remember that appointments are never required, walk ins are always welcome! And don't forget to save time onsite with RapidPass BEFORE you arrive - see www.redcrossblood.org/rapidpass .

Help will also be needed for greeting donors, setup and clean up, please contact Jennifer Massey, massey.jmgmail.com / 404.375.8327.


Lent Reflections writers - time to sign up

A special annual tradition at St. Catherine’s is our booklet of reflections on the season of Lent written by our own parishioners. Won't you consider writing for this year’s collection? Forty writers are needed for the forty days of Lent!

You will be assigned a scripture passage on which to write a brief (1 or 2 paragraphs) meditation. Names are not attributed to individual writings, so only you (and the editors) will know which one is yours! Still hesitant? You can view last year's booklet to see what other contributions have looked like... go to our Lent Reflections page. Reflections will be due by Sunday, February 24, in order to be published by Ash Wednesday. Please sign up by contacting Karen Manno to receive your assignment.

In the Diocese - Spring Semester

  • New Beginnings 41 - March 22-24 | Camp Mikell | ​Cost: $100
    New Beginnings is a spiritual formation retreat designed to address the needs of youth in grades 6-8th. Every October and February, no less than 100 youth and adults come together for the retreat. The weekend includes talks given by high school team, small groups, skits, music, and plenty of fellowship.
  • Graduation Celebration - May 5 | 3:30-5:30pm | St. Bart's Decatur
    The first Sunday in May, we come together to celebrate our graduating seniors. All youth in middle and high school, their families, and friends travel from across the Diocese for the occasion. A contemporary Youth Led Liturgy starts at 3:30pm. Young adults come to lead music and preach. We are intentional about selecting a young adult that can shed some of their wisdom on the current graduating class. The young adults involved truly care about these youth, and they want to share their love and life experience with them as they prepare for the new journey. Bishop Wright attends the event and leads the community in a Blessing of the Seniors. He also stays after the service to spend some extra time with our young people.
