St. Catherine's Annual Events


March late or early April

Basque Dinners have been held annually for 62 years. This function has become a Community affair where the American Legion and other local organizations have combined efforts and shared the profits. The event draws people in from all parts of the State of Idaho and has been noted in brochures produced by tourism organizations.

Held at the American Legion Hall in Hagerman

June

Yard Sale by CCW
Held at the Church

December - Advent

The church is located conspicuously at the north entrance to the City of Hagerman on the main street, U.S. Highway 30.

During Advent the parish keeps the lights on in the main church.

This provides a postcard image of the church as the outgoing light streams out through the stained glass windows.

Many travelers passing through on the main highway have stopped to take pictures of the scene. Those who see it during that time of year are reminded of the true spirit of Christmas.

History

The earliest Catholic families to reside in Hagerman, then part of the Idaho Territory, were the families of Colonel O.P. Johnson and John Curran. Itinerant missionaries and priests passed through at rare intervals and said mass in parishioner's homes. Priests were summoned from surrounding areas, primarily from Boise, to officiate at weddings and funerals.

In the early 1920's Benedictine Sisters established a nursing home in Wendell. Chaplains at the nursing home performed weddings, held funeral services and baptized in Hagerman. Mass was offered by the Chaplains several times a year in parishioner's homes and rented halls.

St. Catherine's Church building was dedicated in 1948. Bishop Kelly had become aware that a church was needed in Hagerman. A loan was obtained from the Catholic Church Extension Society to build the church.

Parishioners held Basque dinners at the American Legion Hall to raise funds to repay the loan. Around 1972, Bishop Treinen appealed to the Extension Society once again for funds, which were used to build a Social Hall. Much of the work was done by Father Stephan and parishioners.

Stained glass windows were added to the church from donations by the parishioners, the last window was dedicated in 2008.
