Partners in the Gospel

Now underway

February 2024 update

Archbishop Etienne has announced that effective July 1, 2024, St. Martin of Tours Parish and Holy Rosary Bilingual AcademyAll Saints Parish and School (Puyallup), and Sacred Heart Parish (Tacoma) will become a Parish Family.

Over the next 3 years, we will become 1 canonical Parish under the guidance of a Pastor and 1 or more Parochial Vicars. (Please note that this does not mean 1 single church building or campus.)

This pastoral planning effort is taking place across the Archdiocese of Seattle to reinvigorate and renew our local Church, to better respond to the needs of the people and reflect the realities of today. Please continue to pray for this renewal effort, and especially for our new Parish Family. 

The Parish exists to bring people to a living encounter with Christ.

With Jesus at the heart of this work, we can live a future filled with hope.

Learn more about Partners in the Gospel through the video below, or the Archdiocese's website.
