Welcome to our Catholic communities of St. Catherine's, St. George's and Our Lady of Sorrows. We are the largest parish territory in Southern Missouri located in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. We are part of the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau.
Our Lady of Sorrows, Williamsville
Father Daniel Hirtz
On behalf of St. Catherine Parish, I personally welcome you to join us at worship. If you are not familiar with the Catholic tradition, please ask for a card to help follow along. Know that you are welcome to participate in everything as the church members do, except we do not have open communion. If you would like a blessing at the time of communion, you are welcome to come forward and simply cross your arms across your chest as a sign you wish a blessing.
May you be blessed in sharing this experience we call mass which has not changed since the earliest apostles in the first century. If you have other needs, please let me know.
