St. Catherine of Siena welcomes parishioners during kickoff weekend

TRUMBULL—St. Catherine of Siena Parish celebrated their second annual kickoff weekend on September 8 and 9, where old and new friends were welcomed back from summer vacations.

Parishioners were welcomed by greeters into the McClinch family center, where Mass is being celebrated while construction is being done in the main church for the “Christ at the Center” reconstruction.

Father Joseph Marcello, Pastor and Father Luke Suarez, Parochial Vicar spoke with parishioners after all Masses. Members of the community were able to enjoy pastries after Mass while they visited with friends and family.

On August 15, 2017, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Father Marcello announced “Christ at the Center,” an initiative of liturgical renewal which will beautify and enhance the sanctuary of the church. Designed by noted architect Duncan G. Stroik, AIA, completion of this project is anticipated in 2018.

In recent years, St. Catherine of Siena has joyfully welcomed hundreds of new families into the parish, and called forth their talents for the good of our community, and in service to Our Lord and each other.

On the success of the kickoff weekend, Father Marcello said, “It’s a real joy, and a sign of great hope, to welcome so many new families to our parish.  We move forward with confidence, rooted in our faith in Christ.”
