Youth Migrant Encuentro Middle School Service Learning Trip

Our summer service learning trip is back!  All rising 7th-9th graders are invited to apply for our trip the Skagit Valley running from Wednesday, July 31-Saturday, August 3.  We will stay at St. Mary in Anacortes and volunteer at the Tri-Parish Food Bank at St. Charles in Burlington.  In the evenings, we will attend Mass and host a fiesta in one of the local migrant camps.  The youth will grow in faith, fellowship, and their understanding of Catholic social teaching as we encounter those who labor in the fields to put food on our table.  Applications are due by Monday, April 22.  Contact Jennifer with any questions and to receive an application: jibach@stedwardparish.net 

 

 

Partners in the Gospel FAQ: What does this mean for Lay Leaders? ¿Qué significa esto para los líderes laicos?

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. As the Church lives out Partners in the Gospel, the work of Lay Ecclesial Ministers will become even more important. Lay leaders are needed at all levels of parish life from leading ministries and liturgy planning to accounting and marketing expertise.  Partners in the Gospel provides a great opportunity for lay people to become even more involved in parish life.  To learn more about Partners in the Gospel, go to https://archseattle.org/partners  

A medida que la Iglesia se desenvuelve como Compañeros en el Evangelio, el trabajode los Ministros Eclesiales Laicos será aún más importante. Se necesitan líderes laicos en todos los niveles de la vida parroquial, desde los ministerios principales y la planificación litúrgica a la contabilidad y experiencia en marketing. Compañeros en el Evangelio ofrece una gran oportunidad para que los laicos se involucren aún más en la vida parroquial
