Question 2012 Imp 2.0i sport w/cel and bad oil consumption

I'd appreciate any advice on this if possible. My 2012 impreza is burning about a quart of oil approx every 3-400 miles. This by itself is alarming but at the same time its throwing a P0420 bank 1 CEL on the regular now. I purchased this car new and became used to adding a quart every 2-3k miles up until last year when I started having to add oil every 1k miles and clear the CEL every 4-6 months. Now the CEL is every few days and the add oil light comes on every 3-400 miles. Am I heading for a catastrophic failure? Seems like it to me. I also think the oil burning is messing up the CAT. Not sure if replacing O2 sensors and the cat is even worth it if I cant stop the oil burning. I'm still putting about 150 miles a day on it though so there's that.....

I'd like to keep it for another 2 winters but not sure if it will last and I dont want to spend a bunch of money on new snow tires and such to just have this car blow up in 6 months. Any ideas? Suggestions? Prayers even...

Thanks!

You need a new short block. Make an appointment with the dealer.

That blows....
I'm sure there's no way of knowing how much longer I can run this car but I'm going to try to get as much out of it as I can. I'm not going to fix this. Too expensive to rebuild the engine.

Thanks for the advice!

I forgot to mention, I have 212k miles on it already. I got my money's worth out of it I believe, so there's that at least.
