Saint Catharine is an unincorporated community in Linn County, Missouri, United States.[1] It is located about four miles east of Brookfield on Route 11. Its post office has closed, and its mail now comes from Brookfield.

St. Catharine was founded in 1856, and is not named for Catherine of Alexandria, but instead for Mrs. Catherine Elliot, by her husband, William Elliot.[2] A post office called Saint Catherine was established in 1859, and remained in operation until 1993.[3]
