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.
The spaciousness of St. Katharine Drexel Church and Parish Center in Martell lends itself to large gatherings for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as well as faith formation classes, youth and senior activities, and church- and community-based events. We are also a new regional training site for the Diocese of Sacramento.
