Advent Journey

This Advent, we’re called to come together to participate in a Diocesan-wide Total Consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, following the structure 33 Days to Morning Glory: Do-It-Retreat In Preparation for Marian Consecration by Fr. Michael Gaitley. In this Advent Season which falls in the year of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, we prepare to welcome Jesus the way that He came: through the Blessed Virgin Mary. Thus, we embark on our Diocesan Advent Journey to Jesus through Mary. The diocesan wide consecration will take place on the Fourth Sunday of Advent (December 24th) during the Liturgy. We’re all invited to prepare ourselves properly for this Act of Consecration. The book “33 Days to Morning Glory” will be available in the narthex of the church and in the main office. Suggested donation $5.

Saturday Morning Mass

Saturday morning Mass will be starting on December 2, 2017 at 9.30am. In addition, on first Saturdays of each month, there will be a consecration of our parish community to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! Furthermore, to meet the requests of parishioners, a priest will be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation right after Mass.

Eucharistic Adoration

Spending just one hour 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. Parishes with perpetual adoration have shown increased vocations, church attendance and many conversions and other graces. Why not join us? Eucharistic Adoration is the first and third weekends of the month. Adoration begins in the chapel after morning Mass on Friday at 7:30 am and ends with Benediction at 9 am Saturday morning. 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.

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!

Mass Time Change

After broad consultation and unanimous vote at the Pastoral Council meeting, the 12:00 pm Mass has been changed to 12:30 pm. This change will help alleviate parking issues, and will also take some of the pressure off the 10:30 am Mass. The Sunday Mass times are now 8.30 am, 10.30 am, 12.30 pm. Changing the schedule of Masses is never an easy decision, though this change is absolutely necessary for the safety of our parishioners. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

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. For  more  info, call the parish office..
