The Church of St Catherine of Siena

In additional to serving local parishioners, The Church of St. Catherine of Siena on the Upper East Side of Manhattan serves the staff and visitors of two neighboring hospitals - The Hospital for Special Surgery and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

St. Catherine of Siena, a Fourteenth-Century Dominican philosopher and theologian, is one of the two patron saints of Italy (the other being St. Francis of Assisi) and one of six patron saints of Europe.

The church seems modest as one walks past, but it is beautifully kept by the Dominicans. If you are in the neighborhood, please consider stopping by for a few moments of reflection. Visitors are always welcome.
