   Mass July 5th, 2020

                         

     

Dear Friends in Christ,

As we continue to pray for an effective vaccine for the corona-virus, may we also continue to pray for all those that are helping to alleviate the suffering from the pandemic.  After several months of a Eucharistic fast, the Church is being allowed to open again for public service.  We echo the Bishops main concern which is for the safety and health of everybody.  As we prepare to open up again for public Mass we are taking every precaution to ensure your safety.  The guidelines set forth by the Governor and the Archdiocese are quite extensive.  This also means that we need your cooperation, and your patience.  

 

Attending Mass will be a little different.  For one, people will be required to wear a mask.  This is for your own safety, and the safety of those around you.  Every other pew will be blocked off so that we may maintain social distancing.  There will be several elements of the Mass that will be left out, such as the sign of peace and no Precious Blood for communion.  Communion will be distributed after the Mass has concluded.  After the final blessing, people will come up for communion and then immediately exit the church.  It will be confusing at first, but we will make the adjustments.  Do not worry, we will be giving instructions as we go along.  

 

Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to come to Mass.  We want to assure you that the Archbishop is still granting a dispensation for those that will not be attending Mass.  During Phase 2, we will only be allowed to have 50 people for Mass.  Fortunately, we will be able to have another 50 people in Hallen hall. We will have to start a registration system so that people can register to attend a particular Mass.  Only those that have registered will be allowed to attend.  We will clean the church and the restrooms after each Mass.  If you would like to volunteer to be the person that checks people in for Mass, or to help with cleaning the church after Mass, please contact us.  We are going to need many volunteers to make this happen.  We will provide training.  Hopefully we will also open the parish office soon.  Please keep us in your prayer, and be assured that we are continuing to pray for you.  

In the love of Christ,

Fr. Tim Ilgen

Since the CoVid crisis, our homeless are in a dire situation.  They have less access to running water and bathroom facilities. Due to the ongoing crisis now and with all the businesses closing, the homeless population is getting shut out of services. In response, we have combined our Sacred Heart and Saint Michael's men's shelter at Saint Michael's 7 nights a week   

As Catholics whose tradition is to serve the poor, there are many ways for you to volunteer, especially if you are NOT in the high risk category.  We could use the help!  

Dear Parish Family,

Archbishop Etienne, the Archbishop of Seattle, has begun a pastoral plan to see what are the needs of the people of the Archdiocese.  The Archbishop wants to build a more thriving and mission-oriented Catholic community in Western Washington.  Because all Catholics share in the life and mission of the Risen Jesus, therefore your voices are critical to inform the plan.  

We are asking you to click on the link below and take the survey.   Responses are anonymous and confidential. The initial questions seek to better understand the experiences, beliefs, needs, desires and faith trajectories of Catholics across western Washington. The final section of the survey includes several opportunities for all Catholics to provide open feedback on the church’s strengths, areas for growth, and to share hopes for the new plan’s priorities. Participants should allow at least 15-20 minutes to complete the survey.  

Our goal is to achieve representative feedback from across the region, the generations, and many demographics. This would provide critical insights for the many ministries of our church and highlight opportunities to deepen engagement with Catholics.  

Thank you for your participation in this survey.

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Tim Ilgen

Archbishop Etienne has just finished recording a message to the people of the Archdiocese. In the video, he expresses that out of an abundance of caution, and despite our best efforts to slow this rapidly spreading virus down, he has suspended all public Masses effective immediately. We have not seen a contagion of this magnitude in our country for 100 years and it is important that we take it seriously.  We recognize that there are many implications to this decision and there will be additional communication forthcoming as the situation unfolds.  Here is the link to the Archbishop’s video:  https://vimeo.com/397057838/6ddaeea5b9  

 

 

 

 

Mass Times:

Daily Masses

Monday, Wednesday-Saturday 9:00AM. Tuesday 6:00PM

 We know that everyone is looking forward to coming back to Mass. At this time we are still limited to how many parishioners can be at Mass at one time.  We normally would have 6 Masses each weekend with 350 plus at each Mass. As for now we will only have 5 Masses each weekend and can only have about 130 parishioners per Mass. We are asking that all take turns. Please only sign up  for 1 Mass every few weeks. This will give more parishioners a chance to be able to come to Mass. Thank you for your understanding and help.

There is still a general dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation.
