The Churches of St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Parish
welcome all who enter through our doors

St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Parish is comprised of seven churches spread throughout Amador County, California. In 2011, three parishes comprising six churches were united into one Catholic community. In 2013, construction of St. Katharine Drexel Church and Parish Center in Martell was completed, and the church was dedicated. Read more about our primary church and the mission churches here.

Further changes to the parish came on July 1, 2017, as we transitioned to a one-priest parish. This required a significant change in the parish Mass schedule. Be sure to read about the changes and view the new weekend and weekday Mass schedule by clicking here.

General Announcements

FALL BEREAVEMENT AND LOSS GROUP. Do you or someone you know feel the need to find increased healing and support for a death of a loved one, or other coping with loss, in a major way? We are looking for at least 5 people to sign up so we can begin a six-week support group in October. If interested or have questions, please contact Victoria Grimm at the Parish Center. Phone 209-223-2970 or email counselor@stkatharinedrexel.com. This will be a group that has a faith-based focus. Click here for more information.


RCIA BEGINS IN SEPTEMBER. Interested in becoming Catholic? Or perhaps you're Catholic but haven't received First Communion and/or Confirmation? Please join us for an informal informational class on Tuesday, September 5 at St. Katharine Drexel Parish Center. Click here for more information!


LITURGY OF THE HOURS, MORNING PRAYER, begins this month at St. Katharine Drexel Church, on Monday and Wednesday mornings at 8 AM. These beautiful, ancient prayers from The Divine Office take less than half an hour to recite together, and they are a great way to grow together as a praying family. We have several Catholic Prayer books for use and will spend a few minutes at the beginning of each morning's prayers to help you find your way through the Liturgy, which can also be accessed online using your smartphone or tablet. Please consider joining us!


THE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY will be sung on the third Saturday of each month before the Vigil Mass at St. Katharine Drexel. Note that this is a change in the schedule - there is no longer a recitation of the Chaplet before any Sunday Mass at St. Katharine Drexel.
