ST VINCENT DE PAUL THANKS YOU A young woman became a mother at the beginning of the pandemic. Having no family nearby, she struggled on her own the past two years to meet expenses for herself and her daughter. Working part-time and using credit cards to cover financial obligations had not provided adequate income. Additionally, her request to work more hours was not granted. When the woman fell behind in rent, she called the St Vincent de Paul Helpline requesting assistance (206-767-6449). With your support, we pledged to pay a portion of her rent and provided additional resources. Information, Jo Ann Wiesner, 206-291-4012 or

TEEN, YOUNG ADULT AND ADULT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR FAITH FRIENDS MINISTRY Faith Friends is a unique blend of our Faith Mentor, children’s faith formation program, and an inclusion ministry. The program's goal is to give children and teens ages 7- 18 with physical, cognitive and/or intellectual disabilities access to the parish community, social events, and faith formation. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the Faith Friends program is the Faith Peer program. Faith Peers are teens and young adults who have chosen to live out their discipleship and share some of their personal time in dedication and service to the goals of the program. Adult volunteers are needed for the Adult Leadership team. Training for Faith Mentors, Faith Peers and Adult Leadership begins soon. Information, Jennifer Wong, 206-619-0816,, or
