As members of the St. Catherine Laboure family, it is very important to us that we don't lose contact with you! In order to keep in touch, we are doing special editions of our weekly bulletins that will be available on our website only.  

We are also asking you to consider signing up for FLOCKNOTE.  This email program allows us to send out an email to everyone signed up with just one click.  We are currently planning on sending out a weekly "just checking in" email to everyone on our FLOCKNOTE list.  To sign up for FLOCKNOTE, you can text the word "CHINO" to 84576, or go to flocknote.com/stcatherinecv on your computer and set up an account.

Our monthly newsletter will be mailed out as scheduled.  We want to remain connected!

We are recording our Daily Mass (being done by Fr. Fred) and you can listen to those recordings availble here on our website.  Father is accompanied by only an Altar server and sacristan in order to help keep us all healthy.  Please note!  At this time our recordings are AUDIO only, so you will be able to hear Mass, just not see it.

Welcome to Holy Week!

As we begin what can only be called the strangest Holy Week Ever- unable to attend Mass to celebrate Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem, to participate in the washing of the feet on Holy Thursday, follow Christ’s journey to crucifixion through the stations of the cross on Good Friday, or attend Mass to celebrate His glorious resurrection on Easter - your parish is mourning the loss of connection just like you.

 This year, we are going to be doing a few things that we hope you will join in from home - knowing that God will hear our prayers as one.

Many of you participated in our Palm Sunday "Drive thru Palm Pickup."  It was truly a joy to see you - even if we couldn't give you a hug or a handshake!  There are a few palms available.  If you stop by the office during office hours, we will be happy to give you a couple. 

We will have some photos of the event posted on our website.  A very big "THANK YOU" to Father Fred, Deacon Michael Holmes, Deacon Mike Johnsen, Terry Johnsen, Jenny Spalding, Sean Holmes, and Arturo Gomez for the parts they played in making this such a special morning!  Click here to see some photos of the drive thru in action.

Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday

To Listen to the Holy Week Triduum celebrations listed below, click here.

Father will be doing a Holy Thursday Mass (without a congregation per the Diocesan directives).  We will be recording this Mass and will make it available on our website.
 
In addition, on Holy Thursday between the hours of 6:30 pm and 8 pm, we are asking all of our families to spend a minute in prayer to join in the Holy hour that will be offered (without attendees) on behalf of our parish. During this time, the names of every registered family will be read before the Blessed Sacrament. We hope you will take this opportunity to spend one hour in prayer in your home as a family as we remember the words of Jesus - “could you not keep watch for one hour?” (Mk 14:37) when Jesus spent the evening in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane before His crucifixion.
 
On Good Friday Father will celebrate the Veneration of the Cross - again without a congregation due to Diocesan directives.  We will be recording this service and making it available on our website. We will also be recording the Stations of the Cross and putting it in our website.
 
Father will celebrate an Easter Sunday Mass (without a congregation) that will be recorded and made available on our website.  We hope that you and your families have a very blessed Easter!  
 
On Easter Sunday, from 7 am to 8 am, we will have our Monstrance out under awning of the St. Michael Room.  You will be directed to drive past the monstrance, in the same manner as we did for our Palm Sunday "drive thru."  You are not allowed to get out of your car, but should you wish to make a visit to the church, you will be allowed a brief stop in front of the Monstrance.  Please follow all directions given by those who will be in the parking lot for traffic control.  
 
We look forward to the day when we can once again join together at Mass and worship our Lord.  May you all remain healthy and blessed through this trying time.

Confessions will be on Thursdays from 11 am to 12 noon.  Those wishing to go to Confession are asked to enter the main church doors, and sit in the BACK of the church - maintaining the 6 foot "social distance" recommended by the CDC.  Father will open the door to the chapel and the person who is next in line will enter the chapel for Confession.  All persons will leave the chapel through the chapel door - not returning to the church. 

We ask that no one enters the chapel through the outside door on Thursdays from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm to allow privacy for Confessions.  Please note that the end of Confessions will be "fluid" as Father will make sure that everyone who comes during the posted times for Confession, will have the opportunity to make their Confession.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

We, the community of St. Catherine Labouré, empowered by the Holy Spirit, will strive to serve the Gospel message in reaching out as the Body of Christ to serve our brothers and sisters.

Most Reverend Eduardo A. Nevares, auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix celebrated Mass at St. Catherine's on September 2, 2012, where he formally acknowledged our new status as a parish and installed Rev. Fred LeClaire, CMF as our pastor.  May we continue to grow in the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!

 

Novena Prayer to St. Anthony Mary Claret

St. Anthony Mary Claret, during your life on earth you often comforted the afflicted and showed such tender love and compassion for the sick and sinful.  Intercede for me now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues in heavenly glory.  Look with pity on me [or on the person afflicted with illness or whose conversion is desired] and grant my prayer, if such be the will of God.  Make my troubles your own.  Speak a word for me to the Immaculate Heart of Mary to obtain by her powerful intercession the grace I yearn for so ardently, and a blessing to strengthen me during life, assist me at the hour of death, and lead me to a happy eternity.  Amen.
