"Fr. Robert Cole, Pastor, of St. Katharine Drexel Parish served Mass to approximately 600 campers and staff on July 3, 2019 at Camp Bernadette in Wolfeboro.  Camp Fatima boys and staff joined the girls and staff of Camp Bernadette for the day, which culminated in the 5pm Mass.  Both camps are under the auspices of the Manchester Diocese."

On Sunday, June 30, after the 8:30 Mass, the Knights of Columbus invited parishioners to join them in dedicating a plaque to Cecil Williams, whose talent and dedication created the stands for the Stations of the Cross in the St. Katharine Drexel Prayer Grove.  Connie Williams and her family witnessed the blessing of the plaque given by Fr. Cole as all presented remembered Cecil's kindness and faithfulness to the parish.

 

 

A Caregivers Luncheon, held June 2, offered a delicious meal, 2 video presentations, and a gift bag for guests all the while providing a relaxing atmosphere for the 45 caregivers who attended.  Friendly Visitor volunteers and additional support from others made service impeccable and the event rewarding for all.

  A glorious day visiting our "sister" parish of St. Katharine Drexel Church in Dorchester, Ma.
 

The March meeting of the St. Katharine Drexel book group included our guest, Barbara Miles, former diocesan archivist, who joined a discussion focused on readings of the life of Katharine Drexel and how she became a saint. Barbara also shared the content of her dissertation, "Used Trumpets," which revealed the many innovative ways Katharine advanced her mission of educating Indian and black children.

  Among the many parish ministries who are sharing their 'talents' with those in need during this Christmas season are some of the volunteers of the Friendly Visitors who baked a variety of cookies, bagged, tagged, and then delivered over 40 "goodie bags" on Tuesday, Dec. 18, for those at Wolfeboro Bay who do not have family or friends in the area.  Thanks for spreading Christmas joy!
 

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is pleased to announce that the new home of the sacred remains of Saint Katharine Drexel have solemnly been installed at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

 

The second annual "Blessing of the Animals" was held at noon on Saturday, Oct. 6. 2018 Forty-seven folks and their pets received a blessing from Fr. Cole, assisted by Deacons Rick Hilton and Charlie Ferraro.  Refreshments for both pets and their owners, as well as an opportunity to share their love of God's creatures, were enjoyed by all.
