Welcome to St. Katharine Drexel Parish! Our parish was founded in 2004, and we moved into our new church and school in 2008. The majority of our parishioners live on the west side of Sioux Falls , and others live in the surrounding countryside or other areas of Sioux Falls. We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive parish where no one would feel like a stranger for very long.
At St. Katharine Drexel Parish, our most important activity is the celebration of the weekend Eucharistic liturgies and other sacraments. We also have a heavy emphasis on faith formation for children, young people, and adults. In response to the call of Jesus and the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we are also involved in many social ministries in our community, especially service to those who lack material resources.
We always welcome visitors to our church, those who join us for liturgy and those who just want to drop by for a quiet prayer. If you have no church family with whom to pray, please join us.
Are you new to our parish? We would love to have you become an active part of our faith community! Please stop after Mass and introduce yourself to Fr. Tschakert. He will give you a card of introduction to fill out. Or, you can request more information, ask a question or have someone contact you by filling out the simple form here. Welcome!
The mission of St. Katharine Drexel Parish is to gather together as a community of faith, sharing the Word of God with all of our neighbors through our words and example. We emphasize the sanctity of the Eucharist in our daily lives and encourage good stewardship and lifelong Catholic Christian education. Our consistent message is "Come home to Christ".
