Saint Catherine of Siena warmly welcomes... anyone who is new to our area, anyone who is searching for the truth, or anyone who is looking for a spiritual home. We are joyfully and faithfully Roman Catholic in belief and practice, - a community of faith, worship, and service - and with open hearts we invite all our brothers and sisters into a living and saving friendship with the Lord Jesus Christ, in the communion of His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
"Making the sign of the Cross when we wake up, before meals, in facing danger, to protect against evil, in the evening before we sleep... means telling ourselves and others whom we belong to, whom we want to be.
This is why it is so important to teach children how to make the sign of the Cross properly. And as we do upon entering a church, we can also do so at home, by keeping a bit of holy water in a suitable place — some families do so: this way, each time we come in or go out, by making the sign of the Cross with that water we remember that we are baptized.
Do not forget, I repeat: teach the children how to make the sign of the Cross."
- Pope Francis
