Parish Mission Statement/Declaración de Misión Parroquial


After several months of work and deliberation, the Pastoral Council of St. Katharine Drexel Parish promulgates the following statement:

St. Katharine Drexel Roman Catholic Parish is formed from the people who reside in the geographic area around northern Waller County. It is the product of the merging of two former parishes, Mary, Mother of God and St. Martin de Porres. St. Katharine Drexel is a parish with a new beginning. We are aware of our past, but we are growing with new believers from diverse cultures learning to work together, all believing in the power of the love of Jesus Christ.

Our parish and our families are the focus of our lives. St. Katharine Drexel provides a structure to enable us to grow in our faith and a place of comfort at all times. Our parish is founded on the principles of Christian Stewardship, believing, living and committed to prayer and charity. We seek to be a beacon of faith for all people and offer a place where we can work, pray and spread Christ’s message in order to be one body in the Lord.

Despues de varios meses de trabajo y deliberaciones, el Concilio Pastoral de Santa Catarina Drexel promulga la siguiente declaración:

La Parroquia Catolica Romama de Sta. Catarina Drexel está formada por la gente que reside en el area geografica de los alrededores del Noreste de Waller County. La parroquia de Santa Catarina Drexel es una parroquia con un nuevo principio y, el resultado de la unión de dos parroquias anteriores, Santa Maria, Madre de Dios y San martin de Porres. Estamos concientes de nuestro pasado, pero estamos creciendo con nuevos creyentes de diversas culturas aprendiendo a trabajar juntos, y, a creer en el poder del amor de Jesucristo.

Nuestra parroquia y nuestras familias son el foco de nuestras vidas. Santa Catarina Drexel proveé una estructura que nos permite crecer en nuestra fe y, al mismo tiempo y siempre es un lugar de comfort. Nuestra parroquia fue fundada bajo los principios de la Administración Cristiana, creer, vivir y dedicación a la oración y, a la caridad. Buscamos ser un faro de fe para toda la gente y ofrecer un lugar donde podamos trabajar, orar y predicar el mensaje de Cristo para poder ser un solo cuerpo en el Señor.
