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.

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!

Human history is rich with tales of globe trekkers who have gained valuable insight about themselves and the world around them through the discovery and exploration of cultures outside their own. People who travel the globe begin a lifelong journey of worldly citizenship.

How do I get my child baptized?

For a child to be baptized in the Catholic Church, there must be a basis for hope that the child will be raised in the Catholic faith. In practice, this generally means that at least one parent is Catholic. Our Diocese requires parents to participate in Baptism preparation before the baptism of their children. We offer Baptism classes here at Our Lady of the Lake. Each child brought forward for baptism must also have at least one godparent who is a confirmed Catholic.
