Welcome to St. Catherine of Siena's Parish Website. We would love to have you join our faith community, just click on the link to complete preliminary registration information under the new member tab above. Our MIssion Statement...
We, as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of St Catherine of Siena Catholic Church of Ripon, ever grateful for our rich heritage, empowered by our common Baptism and increasingly enriched through lifelong formation and spiritual growth, proclaim the love and teachings of Christ through the sacraments, prayer, worship and service.
The Archbishop has asked us to share the following request to our parish members:
Our people are so generous when we ask for assistance for global disasters such as floods, tsunamis, earthquakes. In Haiti, the people are once again in a disastrous situation. The earthquake destroyed homes, infrastructure and businesses, and displaced tens of thousands of people throughout the southern region, Grand Sud. In addition, Tropical Storm Grace passed over southern Haiti on August 16, causing additional hazards and complicating the search and rescue efforts.
He would like to offer the opportunity to respond as we did in the past when Haiti was hit with natural disasters. Donations will go to Catholic Relief services and be distributed in approximate thirds as follows:
An online link to donate is https://archmil.givingfuel.com/haitian-relief-2021.
You may also write a check to St. Catherine and on the memo line write "Haiti" and we will forward the money to the Archdiocese. Any questions, please feel free to contact Diane in the parish office
Thank you for your generosity

Sunday and Daily Mass/Wearing of Face Masks - we are following CDC guidelines. The CDC recommendation is that those who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks but those not fully vaccinated are expected to continue to wear masks indoors Fr. Davies, Esther and myself are fully vaccinated.
Reception of Communion - We are to maintain reception of Communion under one species. Reception of Communion is recommended in the hand only, as alternating distribution between hand and tongue is not allowed.
Hand Sanitizer - Hand Sanitizer will still be available in the church for everyone’s use as they wish.
Holy Water Fonts - The new touchless holy water fonts are in!
Cleaning/Disinfecting - High touch area’s need to be cleaned if the area is going to be used within 72 hours, so the church will need to wiped down after 4 pm Mass doing the high touch areas.
Parish Events, which would include Festivals, Funeral dinners, parish picnics etc. - We can have them we just cannot have self-serve food options. Food needs to be plated and those plating need to use gloves. So Octoberfest has been tentatively scheduled for October 17th with Tuba Dan.
We have gone through many changes this past year, and I thank everyone who stepped up to follow the guidelines and implement them. We thank the Archbishop for taking the lead in helping us maneuver these past 14 months. Many things we have implemented will remain. Live Streaming will continue but we need some volunteers so let me know if you can help. We will train!
Thank you again!
