Mission and Ministry

Pet Memorial Garden Becoming a Reality!

For several years there has been talk of a
memorial garden honoring our pets.  Now, in memory of former St. Catherine’s member Jean Smiset, it is being built! Gil & Trish are  working with Dana Toomey (Jean’s daughter) on installing the pet memorial garden.  Dana has chosen the week of St. Patrick’s Day (Sunday, March 18) for a dedication. More information will be shared as it becomes available!

Backpack Project: working with Nehalem Grade School to provide food security to children in the Nehalem Bay area. Recent projects Sock Sunday and Undie Sunday to provide new clothing for children and youth.

Labyrinth: Indoor labyrinth available to walk and developing an outdoor labyrinth for the community. Experience this walking mediation and contemplation. Walk the labyrinth the first Sunday of each month.

Congregational Care: Meals and ministry of presence for those unable to attend weekly events, celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, home communion, prayer ministry, maintaining a library and holding workshops on living fully at all stages of life

Food Bank: collecting food for the North County Foodbank

News and Notes


Our Lenten program of discussion and soup suppers begins on Wednesday, February 21 and continues every Wednesday through Lent.  This will be in the same format as the “Deep Dive” discussions that were so successful in the fall.  All discussion starters will be provided at the class. There’s no “homework” and lots of opportunity to share your thoughts and learn from others.  All that plus a delicious soup supper!    Don’t miss this opportunity for study and fellowship!
