Parish Mission Statement
We strive to worship God and celebrate the presence of Jesus Christ in Word and the Sacraments as one Holy Family. We seek to open our hearts daily to the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit as we endeavor to be a Catholic Church that puts all people in touch with God.

Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in Holy Communion. I love you above all things and I desire you in my soul. Since I cannot receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually in my heart, as though you are already there, I embrace you and unite myself wholly to you; permit not that I should ever be separated from you.

To demonstrate our solidarity with everyone who is impacted by the coronavirus, our church will ring its bells at noon. At this time, we ask that you pray the Angelus as a family in your home and conclude with the prayer to Our Lady of Seattle. (See both prayers below.)
The Angelus Prayer (English)
V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.
Hail, Mary …
V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail, Mary …
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
