Parish Activities Committee

Who we are: The Parish Activities Committee is a group of parishioners excited about the Catholic faith who are ready to have fun and grow community at St. Katharine Drexel Parish.

What we do:

  • provide support to parishioners who want to start a group or host an event
  • be a contact group for parishioners on how to get involved and become active in the parish and diocese
  • channel parishioners' ideas, feedback, and other information to St. Katharine Drexel Parish Staff
  • be the hands and feet of Christ through activities and groups to meet the needs of our parish and community

Want to know more or get involved? Contact Jessica Schulte ( or 270-2823), Fr. Tschakert or a Parish Staff member at 275-6870.

Several groups of people have mentioned some creative ideas for Silent Auction items. We are still be looking for dinners, sporting events, and other experiences for the auction, along with some of the perennial favorites. Mostly we are aiming to have some family fun, and any funds we raise will be put to good use for our parish charities and debt reduction.
