St. Catherine of Siena Parish was founded in 1960 to meet the needs of an ever growing community.
The school and convent were built on the grounds with an existing farm house serving as the rectory.
The church was meant to be temporary until a new church was erected in 1987.
In 2011 our school consolidated with two other schools to form the new school, All Saints, at a different location.
Our parish however is still very active serving our parishioners and community in many various ways.
We are an Anglo and Hispanic parish and we also provide sign language Masses for those with hearing difficulty or loss. Our parish's school, is All Saints Catholic School, located in Elsmere on the grounds of Corpus Christi Church, about 2 1/2 miles from our parish. Along with three neighboring parishes we support it with its innovative S.T.E.M. program, and clear Catholic identity.
