Canonization Day

Sunday, October 1, 2023

Commissioning at 9:30 a.m. Mass

St. Katharine encouraged everyone to find and follow their own paths to God. As we remember and celebrate the day that St. Katharine was declared to be a saint in heaven, we invite others to join us in a day of giving and service! It may be while thinking of others we discover our move along on our own paths to God!

In addition to encouraging friends of the Shrine to make a special donation on that day, we’re also arranging several volunteer opportunities designed to support not only the Shrine but also Catholic Social Services and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our sign-up sheet online: Reach out to with any questions!
