For the second year, the Knights of SKD are helping the Knights from Holy Trinity sell Christmas Trees in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Church. This is one of our major fundraising activities and all profits will be donated to the SKD Capital Campaign. All shifts are two hours and start the weekend after Thanksgiving and will last about three weeks.

Don’t forget to bring your Capital Campaign pledge envelope to Mass this week to place in the collection basket. If you didn’t receive an envelope or can’t locate your mailing, you can also print a pledge form from our website.
Remember, even if you decide to give online through the convenience of Faith Direct, we ask that you complete a pledge form to help us properly track the campaign and secure financing.
A big note of thanks to Matthew Lorzing and Eagle Scout Troup #1882. For Matthew’s Eagle Scout project, he and members of his Troop built a bridge on the back property of the St. Katharine Drexel Mission Office to complete the Rosary Walk positioned around the pond. What a beautiful and tranquil spot for prayer. Thank you, Matthew!
All parishioners of St. Katharine Drexel Mission are cordially invited to attend a special reception after each Mass on Sunday, October 21 to celebrate the kickoff of our Capital Campaign.
These receptions will last approximately 20 minutes, and are designed to give you the latest information regarding our Capital Campaign — and to answer any questions you may have.
Please make an effort to attend one of the receptions. We look forward to seeing you there as we work together to make our new church home a reality.
Together, Let’s Build Our Church!

In the past several months, suspected scammers have reportedly created fraudulent Gmail accounts in the names of pastors of Catholic churches in the Arlington Diocese and the Archdiocese of Washington D.C., and are using these accounts to solicit parishioners for monetary donations. There have now been reports of these fraudulent emails being sent to SKD parishioners.
If you receive an email from Rev Christopher Murphy, do not respond! Fr. Murphy does not have a gmail account. Email may also arrive from Rev Christopher Murphy and have another gmail account name attached to it.
