A note from the principal

We kick off our Healthy Challenge Week on March 27th. This is a great opportunity for both students and adults to be intentional with choosing healthy habits. Now that we are in the last quarter of the school year, we all need to be reminded of the little things that can contribute to a healthier lifestyle. Consider sharing the following with your family:

Get Them Fed
The more nutritiously your children eat, the better they will do in school. Properly fueled and with stable blood sugar levels, their concentration is enhanced. Always give them a healthy breakfast while cutting back on high-sugar cereals, pastries, and undiluted juices (which can have the same sugar content as sodas.) Most kids are ravenous after school, so before they settle down to study, provide a healthy, non-junk food snack to carry them through to dinner.

Get Them Moving
There are a lot of causes for why children are stressed. Sports, exercise, and dancing can relieve stress. Physical activity that gets students completely away from academics for a few hours each day can actually help them perform better on school work.

Get Them Breathing
Teach your children a simple breathing exercise that you’ll do with them once or twice a day and in times of stress: Take a deep breath, hold to the count of three, then exhale slowly through the nose to the count of 10.

Get Them to Bed On Time
Elementary and middle school children need up to 10 hours of sleep each night to do their best in school. They also need to curtail the excitement from video games, social media, texting, television, movies for at least 30 minutes before sleep.

I encourage you to get involved with our Healthy Challenge Week. It’s my hope that students, parents, and staff will be a support for each other in making one or two small changes that result in living healthier.

Lenten Service Project opportunity

Your help is needed!!!  On Good Friday morning, we are in need of volunteers to help distribute the grocery bags collected by the parish during Lent.  This is a great opportunity for families to participate in a service project together. 


We will be in need of drivers willing to deliver to one of the various agencies we are serving,

as well as helpers to load the grocery bags into the vehicles. 


Service hours will be given for stuents that need them.  If you are interested, please text or call Melanie Hansbauer at 513-477-9735 or email at   

Easter Choir

We will once again be having a children's choir at the 11:30 Mass on Easter Sunday for anyone 1st grade - 8th grade.  If your child would like to sing in this choir, please email Brenda Hayden at   The dates of the rehearsals will be sent out next week.

Feeding God's Children

This Friday is Feeding God's Children!  We are collecting boxed meals/potatoes/stuffing.  If you don't have time to shop monetary donations are always accepted as well!

Students should wear their blue FGC shirt with their uniform on Friday!

cafeteria volunteers

It is March! We could use some help in the cafeteria this coming month, it looks like many days only have one person helping and many have zero at this point! Please check out the link below and sign up. The kids love to see you in the cafeteria and we have fun while working! Hope to see you soon! 

fish fry

It's FISH FRY TIME!  Come on up and enjoy dinner tonight and every Friday during Lent! Or come up and VOLUNTEER!

Last year, we had record sales due to our first time offering both Dine-In and Drive-Thru options.  Since we're continuing this dual approach, our need for volunteers has doubled.  For each Fish Fry we're in need of 58 adults and 14 kids to cover all of the volunteer shifts.  Please sign up!  It's a great way to meet your fellow parishioners and to serve the parish.  If you’re new to the parish, this is a great way to meet and have fun with your wonderful St. Catherine faith community. For all your service-seeking-students, there are opportunities for them as well.  Use this link to sign up today!

Imagine, trying to write better than Shakespeare! Nick Bottom takes it upon himself to hire a soothsayer to look into the future and find out what Shakespeare’s greatest hit will be so that he can write it first...unfortunately the soothsayer doesn't get it quite right and Nick and Nigel set out to write a musical hit, Omelette. This show is filled with toe tapping, funny songs that will have you dancing, singing, and laughing all the way home!

Parish Campout

It may be cold and wintery outside, but it’s time to think of green grass, leaves on trees, old-fashioned fun, hotdogs, hamburgers, s’mores over a campfire, and another really awesome St. Catherine of Siena Parish Campout!!!  Whether this is your family’s 1st time joining us or the 17th, we know you’ll have lots of fun!


We are excited to announce our annual campout will again be at the Kentucky Horse Park (KHP) just south of Georgetown Kentucky. 


A few aspects regarding KHP.


No park entry fee for visitors or families camping.


KHP has a swimming pool, playground, sand volleyball, tennis courts, basketball courts, and even laundry within a short walking distance of your campsite. No need to drive to these locations.


You are allowed more than one car per site. 


Most sites have at least one shade tree, grass, and are relatively flat – ideal for tent campers. 


Horseback riding is available near the campground!


We were able to block out campsites for our St. Catherine group. We have blocked around 70 sites within the area where we will play games and have group meals. 


If you don’t enjoy tent camping or own a camper, we have an option for you.  For previous Campouts, some families have rented a camper for the weekend and had great experiences.  For this option, the camper is delivered to campsite, setup and would be ready for you when you arrive.  At the end of the weekend, you pack up your things and head home.  The camper is then picked up by the owner.  Prices for this option seem to be very reasonable.  If you’re interested in the option, please contact one of the Campout Captains listed below.
