A Parish Mission is a series of presentations that are intended to challenge, support and uplift our spiritual journeys. It is like being on a retreat, except it is spread out over a series of consecutive days. This Parish Mission will feature Fr. Pete Schavitz, a Redemptorist priest, as the presenter.
Our mission will be rooted in the richness of our Catholic heritage. Each session will have a different theme, but they all center on one’s personal faith journey. We will gather in our worship space to pray, sing, listen, and receive an invitation to grow.
The mission is for everyone, young and old, for those with many questions and for those with only a few questions, and for those just starting or returning to their faith journey. There will be Liturgy of the Word for Children occurring at the same time as the main sessions. Child care and transportation will be available.
Each session will conclude with a creative social filled with good eats, good drink, and good conversation. We look forward to building the kingdom together.
Transportation and child care will be available each night. For more information, please contact Lois Leff at 206.409.4967 or download the mission prayer card by clicking here.

“There must be no family without a home, no refugee without a welcome, no person without dignity.”
– Pope Francis
In the past week, Pope Francis, the U.S. Bishops, Catholic Relief Services, and our very own Archbishop Sartain and Bishop Elizondo have all issued statements speaking out against the Executive Order banning refugees from entering the United States. As Catholics, we believe that the dignity of the human person must be upheld at all times and in all places.
The Church’s social teachings tell us that all people have the right to live in conditions worthy of human life. Below are several resources for you to use in your community to live out in holiness our baptismal call to love our neighbor, especially our vulnerable refugee neighbors.
St. Francis House is established in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi to be a presence in Seattle to serve those in need and to inspire simplicity and charity in its volunteers and those they serve.
Approximately 9,000 people in King County are homeless, living in shelters, under freeways, in doorways and in cars. They are men, women and children. Veterans, the mentally ill and the unlucky. Then there are the thousands and thousands of working poor in the Seattle area who are barely scraping by. The struggles these people face day-to day often seem insurmountable.
