Parish Ministries

At St. Katharine Drexel opportunities abound to share your time and spiritual gifts with your parish family.  Following is a brief description of the many ministries you may volunteer to help.  Not sure which gifts you were given by the Holy Spirit? Periodically we offer an opportunity to take the Catholic Spiritual Gifts Inventory to help identify your gifts.  For information about the inventory or to volunteer for any of the listed ministries, contact the Parish Office by phone or click the link below to send an email to our ministry coordinator.
