Annual Day of Service: Save the Date and Help us Plan!

Our annual Day of Service is happening on Saturday, April 27, 2024.  This fun day brings together over 400 volunteers from our four South Seattle Catholic Parishes as well as Our Lady of Guadalupe and Holy Rosary in West Seattle.  We provide a variety of activities for all ages, schedules, and abilities.  Volunteers serve all over our region to help support over 20 agencies!  Be sure to save the date and look for signups in early March.  If you’d like to help us plan the event, our next meeting is on Tuesday, January 16 at 7pm at St. George in the Parish Hall.   There are many roles including contacting agencies, promotion, signups, and shopping for supplies.   Time spent volunteering counts toward service hours! 

 

Partners in the Gospel FAQ: Does this Mean Churches/Parishes are Closing? 

Have you been hearing the term “Partners in the Gospel” but you’re not really sure what it is?  Partners in the Gospel is a strategic pastoral planning effort taking place across the Archdiocese of Seattle to re-invigorate and renew our local Catholic Church.  It is important to note the parish is not the church building. The parish is the community of the faithful and all that comes with it, and will not be closing, but instead will join together to form one new community of faith.  A parish family is comprised of different parish communities that will eventually become one canonical parish. Decisions will be made at the local level to reflect the needs of each parish community. The parish leadership, with input from parishioners and guidance from the Holy Spirit through a synodal process, will make decisions about how to best carry out the mission locally. This means that the new parish will determine many things, such as what ministries to provide, what outreach to the community is possible, what Mass times to offer and what and how properties and buildings will be used.  Learn more at https://archseattle.org/partners
