Dear Friends in Christ,

Welcome to the Parish of St. Katharine Drexel in Amador County! We are one faith community spread throughout the beauty of California's Gold Country. 

Wherever you come from or however long it has been since you have visited a Catholic Church, you are welcome here. Please join us on Sunday for Holy Mass, or at Saturday evening's Vigil, or feel free to drop by the Parish Office and meet our staff and myself.

Our mission for more than 150 years in Amador County remains the same:  To proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to all nations, celebrate and be strengthened by the power of the sacraments given to us, and serve and love our neighbors. We welcome you to journey with us!


You may see that we have several church sites but we are all one body in Christ. Together we invite you to join us as we continue to discover how the Lord desires to make use of us for His Glory and for our salvation.


May God bless you!


Fr. Colin
