Join the Life, Justice, and Peace Commission

Did you know that we have a regional Life, Justice, and Peace Commission, made up of members for all four South Seattle parishes?  The Commission focuses on integrating Catholic social teaching into the life of the parish by providing opportunities for service and education.  We are currently supporting the annual Day of Service, Refugee Ministry, and Hunger Relief efforts in our parishes.  We are looking at how we can better know the needs of our community and help to fill the gaps.  If you are interested in learning more, join us for our next meeting on Thursday, January 18 at 6:30pm at St. George in the St. Francis Hall.

All moms are welcome to join our small faith-sharing group for our monthly meeting on Monday, January 22nd at 8am at St. George in the Parish Center.  We reflect on the scriptures for the upcoming Sunday, share our experiences, and build community.  For more information, contact Jennifer at jibach@stedwardparish.net    

 

Share your Talents with the Parish this Year

Are you thinking of beginning the New Year by using your talents in a ministry of our parish?  There are many ways to get involved.  Help teach our children, support our middle school youth group, or provide snacks for their gatherings.  Help our neighbors in need through St. Vincent de Paul, the Day of Service or our Life, Justice and Peace Commission.  Contribute to our liturgies by joining the choir, becoming a lector, altar server, or Eucharistic Minister, or help decorate the church for our Masses.  Lead a Lenten small group, join the Knights of Columbus, or help plan one of our annual social gatherings.  There are many ways to get involved.  Reach out to your Office Coordinator or contact Jennifer to learn more: jibach@stedwardparish.net or 206-762-7888.  Your parish thanks you!

 

Partners in the Gospel FAQ: Is this Simply Expanded Clustering? 

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. This is not expanded clustering.  To enable and support parishes in this renewal effort, Partners in the Gospel uses a fundamentally different approach to the historical clustering model. The parish family is a temporary step on the way to becoming one parish. A comprehensive parish support plan is in development as part of this process. This support plan will include a newly formed group of liaison staff, employed and funded by the Chancery, who will accompany the pastor in guiding the parish family through the process of becoming one parish. In addition, many tools and resources are in development that will help support parishes every step of the

way, including detailed handbooks for navigating prayer and worship, community, discipleship, mission and evangelization, governance and leadership, and administration, infrastructure and finance.  Learn more at https://archseattle.org/partners

 

Join our St. Vincent de Paul Conference

Thank you to all who support the St. Vincent de Paul ministry at St. Peter and St. George.  We reach out to neighbors in need, providing them support, rent and utilities assistance, and food from our pantry.  We have combined our conferences to better serve our community and are welcoming new members.  Want to learn more about the St. Vincent de Paul ministry?  Join us at our next meeting on Sunday, January 21 after the 8:30am Mass at St. Peter in the Parish Hall.  You can also support the ministry by contributing to our collections on the first weekend of every month.  Contact Jennifer to find out more: jibach@stedwardparish.net or 206-762-7744.  

 

Hunger Relief Food Distribution/Distribución de Alimentos para Aliviar el Hambre

Thanks to a generous partnership with King County and Re-Entry Corps, we are receiving a weekly donation of food to help families in our parish community .  If you or someone you know is in need of a little extra food, please come downstairs after the 1pm Mass at St. Edward starting next Sunday, January 21.  Selection varies from week to week.  Please bring a bag to pack your items. 

 

Peace,

Jennifer Ibach
