Share the Journey

The Diocese of Venice continues to promote "Share the Journey", a worldwide two-year initiative of Pope Francis. The Diocese continues to run a series in the Mustard Seed designed to answer questions focusing more specifically on Refugee Resettlement. This will serve as an aide to build bridges of reconciliation, understanding and hospitality, in keeping with the spirit of Share the Journey. The topics covered include: "What Does the Gospel Say About Refugees?", "What is the Economic Impact?" and "Are Refugees a Burden?", etc.

Below is the last of the series.

Are Refugees a Burden?

1. The primary goal of the U.S. refugee resettlement program is to help provide protection to refugees and help them become self-sufficient. (Sources: U.S. Refugee Act, Code of Federal Regulations 45 400.1)

2. Within a period of 2-4 months, most refugees manage to find a stable job, send their children to school and pay taxes. One study in Cleveland found that in 2016, refugees generated a total economic impact of $88.2 million in spending that supported 1,220 jobs in the region. In addition, refugees and refugee service organizations contributed $4.5 million in taxes to the state, county, and municipal governments. (Sources: Chmura Economics & Analytics; MPI)

3. Likewise, between 2002 and 2012 refugees started 38 businesses that employed 141 locals in the Cleveland area. In addition to contributing economically, refugees culturally enrich communities and parishes with new perspectives, histories and cultures. (Sources: Chmura Economics & Analytics; MPI)

Eucharistic Adoration

Spending just one hour once or twice a month in adoration can be a life changing experience. Eucharistic Adoration can lead us to a deeper prayer life and closer relationship with God. 

Eucharistic Adoration is the first and third Fridays of the month from 7:30 am to 7 pm. There will be Praise & Worship at 6:30 pm with Benediction at 7 pm Friday evening. For those who cannot commit to an hour each month, we are also in need of substitutes. Please call the office at 239-283-9501.

Praying the Rosary

We pray the rosary in the church (hall) every Sunday at 12 noon, before the 12:30 Mass. Please join us.

Youth Group

The Youth Group meets every first & third Friday for games, pizza, catechesis, & Eucharistic Adoration. Join us from 5:30-9pm and experience the awesomeness of the SKD Youth Group. We are not the church of tomorrow- we are the church of today!

Opening and Closing Procedures

The Opening and Closing Procedures for all groups using the facilities at St. Katharine Drexel Church can be found on this website, right sidebar, under Connections. Please click on Parish Forms to read the procedures.

Traveling Chalice

St. Katharine Drexel has introduced a new program into our parish that brings families together to pray. This initiative is called the Traveling Chalice Program. Each week, a different family can sign up to receive the chalice and pray a short daily prayer for vocations to the married life, single life, and the ordained and consecrated life. It’s an excellent opportunity for a family to grow in their prayer life as they gather together around the dinner table or an appointed time to pray together.
