Youth room expanded at St. Catherine
St. Catherine of Siena in Metairie recently expanded and renovated its CYO youth room. Father Ronnie Calkins, St. Catherine pastor, and parochial vicar, Father Tim Hedrick, recently blessed the 1,500-square-foot room with holy water. Several types of gaming systems were added, including a Wii system, arcade games, a pool table, ping pong table and foosball. “Father Ronnie and Father Tim wanted to give the kids a nice place to hang out,” said CYO moderator Vince Liberto. The CYO offers youth social, athletic, spiritual and service activities year-round. St. Catherine’s CYO meets the third Sunday monthly after the 5:30 p.m. youth Mass.
