Why is this a “Mission” and not a parish?
When there is a need for a new Catholic parish or Community, the bishop (or archbishop) assigns a new parish mission to be planted from an existing parish. In this case, St. Catherine of Siena is sponsoring the new parish mission. Once the mission has established a community and church facilities and is stable, the mission (at the discretion and direction of the bishop) is usually then changed to parish status. By virtue of the community being a mission, the priest in charge is called the administrator, and upon being named a parish, the administrator is then a pastor.
