Compassion Outside Our Doors

St. Catherine’s is dedicated to working together to serve God's people in our local community and in areas of our world that are in need. If you are interested in volunteering your time and talent, please contact Pat Pepper, our Volunteer Coordinator. There are many ways to serve and she will be happy to guide you.  This is a description of just a few of the organizations we work with.
