COVID UPDATE/NEW MASS TIMES
July 4-2021

The COVID situation continues to be fluid and has improved across the country and in our state. In line with the CDC, the state, and the guidelines of the Archdiocese, below are updates effective this coming weekend.

The following restrictions remain in place until further notice:

  • The Precious Blood is not to be distributed to the faithful at this time
  • Physical distanced seating will be provided for all who request it.
  • The pews on the choir side will be designated for parishioners who would like to continue physical distancing.
  • It is asked that pews are filled from the front to the back.

All other restrictions have been lifted:

  • Holy water is permitted
  • Physical distancing is no longer required.
  • Pews on the tabernacle side of the church no longer require distance between families.
  • Masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals. Those who are not vaccinated should continue to mask for their own safety.
  • Congregational singing may resume - This piece was updated and announced at the 11 AM mass last Sunday.

Changes to Mass Times Effective weekend of July 31 / August 1

Since physical distancing is no longer required, this will allow for more parishioners to participate in a mass. Effective the weekend of July 31 and August 1, the parish will go back to three weekend masses.

Saturday mass will remain at 5 PM
Sunday masses will be at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM.

ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL

Support your Catholic community in Western Washington

Thank you for supporting our ACA campaign.  We made our goal! Thank you to the 23% of parishioners who have already made their contribution.  As of now we potentially have a $5,000 rebate. We need more to buy a new baptismal font.  If all the households in our parish contributed a $1 a day, together we can make a difference and carry on our mission.  It's not too late to make a pledge.

We STILL need your support!
