Church Building Update

Our thanks to everyone who has completed and returned a Cornerstone Campaign Pledge Form. With groundbreaking scheduled for March 3rd, the feast day of St. Katharine Drexel, we will be including space in the bulletin in the coming months to provide information about the Cornerstone Campaign and church building project.

How long do I have to fulfill my pledge?
The SKD Cornerstone Campaign will run from November 1, 2021 to October 31, 2024. You can pay monthly, quarterly, annually, or make a one-time payment, whatever works best for your situation. To make your contributions online through the convenience of Faith Direct, visit our website at katharinedrexelcc.org/help-build-our-church/ to learn
more.

Why do I need to complete a pledge form?
The diocese will consider funds pledged through the SKD Cornerstone Campaign Pledge Form, as well as funds received, toward the attainment of the remaining $600,000 that we need to raise. That’s why it is very important that all of our SKD families complete a pledge form so your commitment can be counted toward our final goal!

Consecration to Jesus through Mary

Consecration to Jesus Through Mary

Our Pastor, Rev. Christopher Murphy invites each member of the parish to join in on our parish-wide consecration “to
Jesus through Mary”. To prepare for this, on the weekend of Oct 30-31 each family will be given the gift of one copy of “33 Days to Morning Glory,” a booklet containing daily readings designed to awaken our love for Our Most Holy Mother, who then powerfully draws us closer to her Son and to His great Love and Mercy.

Individuals and families should begin the daily readings at home on Friday, Nov. 5th to culminate on December 8,
Feast of the Immaculate Conception. During each Mass on this holy day of obligation, our Pastor will lead us in reciting an Act of Consecration. It is recommended that not only individuals, but also entire families do these readings, so that
the “parish” consecration will have even greater meaning.

Whenever we consecrate ourselves to Jesus through Mary our Holy Mother, we are transformed and strengthened in our Faith. If you have done the Marian Consecration in the past, it is recommended to do the preparation and consecration annually, since Mary always leads us closer to Jesus, her son.

Please join us in this parish-wide effort!
