The Parish of St. Catherine of Siena and St. Agnes offers a variety of ways in which we can help our community.
We also provide enriching activities for everyone wishing to get involved.
Parish Partners is a specialized area of professional nursing focusing on the intentional care of the spirit as part of the process of promoting health and wellness within the context of the values, beliefs and practices of the faith community.
Care For the Sick and Aging
If you or someone you know is homebound or going to be in the hospital and would like Confession, Holy Communion or Anointing of the Sick, please call the Parish Office: 203-637-3661 ext. 310.
Just because you cannot make it to Mass, it does not mean you should be separated from the beautiful graces of the Sacraments and your St. Catherine Family of Faith.
This committee is responsible for providing refreshments after Mass. The purpose is to provide an atmosphere which allows parishioners to get to know one another. If you would be able to volunteer a few times per year to help set up or clean up, please call the Parish Office: 203-637-3661 ext. 310.
NEW COVENANT CENTER
"The Soup Kitchen", Stamford, CT
St. Catherine of Siena was one of the founding parishes for New Covenant House, now named New Covenant Center (NCC), through the leadership of Father Vincent O’Connor the pastor at St. Catherine's during the late 1970's and '80's. He recognized the need for a local food program to serve Stamford, Darien, New Canaan, and Greenwich and along with the diocese of Bridgeport and Catholic Charities he organized New Covenant House. It was created as an ecumenical center of hospitality to witness Christ's love and concern for the hungry and lonely in this area. The need for food and the number of "guests" have never decreased since the beginning of New Covenant House.
Our parish has three teams serving at the kitchen on Sundays. These teams alternate with other groups providing nourishing meals for every Sunday during the year. The team captains are always open to welcoming new volunteers.
The volunteers for serving at the kitchen must be over 16. Most of the volunteers serve 5-7 times during the year. The meals are planned by the captains and the volunteers contribute time and food as requested. The meals are served cafeteria style and consist of a main course, bread, salad and dessert. The time for the service is from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.
The "guests" at this soup kitchen are mostly men and the meal on Sunday is the only meal that many of them will have that day. The clients are respected as "guests" and New Covenant Center is their home for that meal.
