RESOURCES

  • SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR MASS
    (updated April 8, 2021)

    Attendance is limited while this region of Washington state is in Phase 3, and the following health and safety protocols will be observed:


    • Anyone experiencing a fever or other symptoms of illness must remain at home and not attend Mass. Please self-assess prior to your arrival with the Health Screening Questionnaire, which you can read here.
    • Attendees may face mandatory 14-day quarantine if a fellow attendee subsequently tests positive for COVID-19.
    • All parishioners must wear face coverings, with exceptions for children less than 5 years of age. Please practice social distancing of at least 6 feet from members of another household. The Church will provide sanitized seats (unless otherwise announced), placed at a prescribed distance from others.
    • Mass will be of shorter duration and without public singing. Communion may be received only in the hand. Please remove gloves before the Extraordinary Minister approaches.
    • When physically able during indoor Masses only, please kneel at these times: 1) between Sanctus ("Holy, holy, holy") and Our Father; 2) between Agnus Dei ("Lamb of God") and Communion; 3)  after Communion (or sitting if preferred).


  • Local, National & international Liturgies

    Visit both Northwest Catholic online and the Archdiocese of Seattle website for updated content and messages from Archbishop Etienne, including the Archdiocese's Year of the Eucharist (going until June 6, 2021).


    (updated February 22, 2021) Do you know about Year of Saint Joseph?

     Pope Francis proclaimed a "Year of Saint Joseph" on December 8, 2020, in his Apostolic Letter, "Patris corde" ("With a Father's Heart"). Find ways to celebrate by visiting the Archdiocese of Seattle's dedicated webpage for this special year (which ends December 8, 2021).


  • Praying at Home

    Please click here to visit our page dedicated to prayer resources for home.


  • Continued Parish Stewardship

    About half of our parish income is normally collected at weekend Masses. During this time of limited attendance at Masses, our Parish continues to have expenses. We thank those who have already made the shift to online giving.


    You can set up electronic giving through our Giving page. One-time and recurring options are available.  Call the Office (253 922 7882 or 253 286 0020) if you need assistance with setting this up.

  • Life's Challenges in a Time of COVID-19

    During these uncertain times, we are all experiencing different life and relationship challenges. We invite you to consider the areas where you might need more assistance than usual.

    Know that whatever you are feeling, you are not alone.

     

    The "Self-Care During the Pandemic" resource was offered by Emily De La Torre, a nationally board certified, licensed Catholic mental health counselor, who specializes in marriage and family therapy.  She owns and operates Pax Family Counseling, a group counseling practice in downtown Vancouver.
