Letter to the Editor: More on St. Catherine’s

Mister Fuller: I hope that this is our last outing because the Church organ has finally arrived at St. Catherine’s and we will be busy listening to God’s music as we pray and contemplate things other than your personal struggle to build a gym for us. Now back to the facts of your letter. Many […]

Letter to the Editor: Against the vitriol being aimed at St. Catherine’s Church

As a life-long Catholic, I, for one, would prefer to put the salvation of my soul in the […]

Mr. Fuller, in your recent letter to the editor, you attempt to separate the St Catherine Parish School from the St. Catherine Parish. They are both part of the same Body of Christ. They are both under the supervision of the Bishop of Oakland and governed through the Chancery office in Oakland. The Parish School […]

Letter to the Editor: Independent review of monies needed

It seems that I have upset a few people. I could counter all the attacks, but that would take all day and be counterproductive to my main request: that Bishop Barber and St. Catherine’s church leaders hire an independent third-party fiduciary to unwind the campaigns. However, I want to specifically address a couple of items. […]

Mr. Fuller,  In your recent letter to the editor (last paragraph) you say, “I am truly sorry that I was not able to get this project done.” John, that project was never yours. It was never your job to get the project done. It was our job! That’s how the Catholic Church is supposed to […]

John Fuller’s letter to the editor published on November 13, 2019, misrepresents the history and current situation, and Fr. Anthony’s involvement, of the Capital Building Project, originally meant to raise funds for the construction of a gym  for St. Catherine’s parish.

I am sending out an SOS to all St. Catherine of Siena parishioners, especially those who have been part of the church for the last 20 years or more. For those are the parishioners who have donated to build a gym at St. Catherine’s church. The gym was an idea that was put together by […]

At Home With Vivian: Unexpected entertainment

| October 2, 2019 | 0 Comments

Last Sunday at St. Catherine’s was a lot more fun than usual. While Deacon Albert’s sermon was as interesting and thought provoking as usual, the entertainment in the pews was unexpectedly delightful. I was surrounded by little people. A little boy, about six years old, sat directly in front of me. His mother, and an […]
