Our Patron Saint
St. Catherine of Alexandria was born near the end of the third century of a noble family. Converted to Christianity through a vision, she had a great interest in learning and study, especially the deep questions of philosophy and religion. She was fearless in sharing the beliefs of her faith with others. The political leaders at the time, who were intimidated by Catherine because she was converting many to the faith. She was persecuted and ultimately put to death for her beliefs.
St. Catherine of Alexandria saw the beauty of her Christian beliefs and that is why she could so effectively share and convince others of her faith. The feast day of St. Catherine is celebrated on November 25th.
