Striving to be a grateful parish following Christ by loving God, and loving our neighbors as ourselves through our words, deeds, and thoughts.

"Without the Spirit, our Christian life unravels, lacking the love that brings everything together.
Without the Spirit, Jesus remains a personage from the past; with the Spirit, he is a person alive in our own time.
Without the Spirit, Scripture is a dead letter; with the Spirit it is a word of life.
A Christianity without the Spirit is joyless moralism; with the Spirit, it is life.”

― Pope John Paul II



Feast of the Assumption Rosary Circle

Please join us in a Rosary Circle to pray as we call upon the Mother of God for her intercession to the Heavenly Father on the Feast of the Assumption for our State, Country, and World. It will be held on Saturday, August 15th, The Feast of the Assumption, at 1:00 pm outside at Sacred Heart Church, 2085 Myrtle Avenue.

We will observe social distancing outside in the parking lot at Sacred Heart Church. Please bring your mask. For information please call Mary @ 206-913-9296.

Mass Online

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have created a YouTube Channel for our local Catholic community. We record Fathers Bernard D'Sa and Rowell Gumalay saying Mass so those who are sheltering in place and unable to attend services will have access to Mass with their local priests. The video is shot in high definition. You can view it here or on any smart device (TV, phone, tablet or computer) that has the YouTube app. Be sure to turn on the HD setting to get the best picture and sound. You should also have the ability to make the video full screen. (Note: higher resolutions may not be available for the first several hours after uploading)

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notification of new posts. Don't forget to turn on the sound and adjust the video quality to your needs. You can click here or on the graphic below to go to our channel.

Phone Apps for Catholics

We have gotten some questions about finding high quality apps that support us in our practice of the Catholic faith. After much research, we are recommending that people visit was created in response to the call to evangelization from Saint John Paul II, and then continued on through Pope Benedict, and of course the call for deeper evangelization from Pope Francis
