  • Online giving is safe, simple, and convenient. It benefits our parish by helping to streamline our administrative process and providing more accurate budgeting. 

  • Welcome!

    Dear Friends,
     
    Just when I would want to open the Church more, we have to restrict access due to the COVID response and regulations. Governor Inslee has asked that we STAY HOME, STAY HEALTHY. I add to that, STAY HOLY! This is an opportunity for a Lenten Retreat. Take your Bible, your Rosary, and spend time with Jesus. Scriptural Lectio is perfect nourishment for the soul. Lectio consists of:
     
    1) Lectio = read a short passage of Scripture (Gospel of the week)
    2) Meditatio = think about what you have read (Who? Where? What? etc.)
    3) Oratio = speak to Jesus or another person in the Gospel, and listen
    4) Contemplatio = Listen and receive the presence of God
     
    Meanwhile, we are working with the Archdiocese to provide some private prayer opportunities in the Church. Otherwise, it is important to develop prayer space in your homes. As the desert fathers say, "Sit in your cell, and your cell will give you peace." Families can find new ways to pray together. Even a decade a day is enough to radically influence a family's prayer life. We should also be blessing our homes and praying for protection from physical and spiritual illness. I close with this Take Authority prayer:
     
    In the name of Jesus, I bind and command all the powers and forces of evil to depart right now away from us, our homes, and our lands, and I send you to the foot of the Cross. And we thank you, Lord Jesus, for You are a faithful and compassionate God. Amen. (Whole prayer at: https://goodblessings.org/prayers/prayer-to-take-authority/)
