Thank you to all who came and shared! Please be sure to invite friends, whether they already attend St. Catherine’s or not. This is a good opportunity for everyone to get to know one another, bring new people to church for the first time, or for them to return to church, and perhaps learn more about the Mass or other aspects of the Catholic faith. Be sure to ask someone to sit at your table whom you’ve never sat with before!
