We truly thank you for your protection and care for our parish!!!
This past Fall Archbishop Sartain asked the North Seattle Deanery to brainstorm ideas about how we could function with 3 less priests in the next 5-10 years given demands throughout the Archdiocese and work load on current priests. Leadership from all parishes (18) of the deanery gathered in March to discuss demographic information and generate proposals. There were about 130 people in attendance. After consultation with our Core Team and the priests of the Deanery all were encouraged to have their own parish based listening/input session on the information and projections as well.
We encourage you to review the updated planning documents below to allow for further information gathering and discussion.
OLL Winter Shelter
Please click HERE for a detailed information on how to volunteer for the upcoming winter shelter.
You are invited to join a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Father Tim Clark, pastor of Our Lady of the Lake parish in Seattle.
The Holy Land is often referred to as the 5th Gospel, a place where the people, places and events of the Bible come to life. We will be traveling during a beautiful time of the year in the Holy Land, just after the Jewish holidays and at a time when the harvest is rich and people are in a festive mood. Our program balances archaeological visits, religious visits and opportunities to learn more about the rich cultural life of local people – enjoying their hospitality, food and art. We will celebrate Mass each day at sites where Jesus and his early disciples gathered and/or where pilgrims have gathered over the centuries. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus along the shores of Galilee and through the historical streets of Jerusalem. Father Tim will share with us his own knowledge of the Holy Land and help us connect with the events and stories of the Gospels. Come join us!
