ST VINCENT DE PAUL VISITS A NEIGHBOR CHALLENGED BY COVID A young man working as a bartender found his work hours to be sporadic during the pandemic. When he caught COVID, he lost two weeks of work and pay. Struggling to pay the next month’s rent and utility bill, the man called the SVdP Helpline requesting assistance (206-767-6449). With your help we paid a portion of his rent which gave him enough help to meet his other obligations. Information, Jo Ann Wiesner, 206-291-4012 or

advocate for the child tax credit Urge Senator Patty Murray, Senator Maria Cantwell, and your US representative to strengthen the Child Tax Credit. Last year 36 million families received a monthly payment through an expanded Child Tax Credit program, reducing child poverty by close to 30%. However, the program expired at the end of the 2021. The U.S. bishops recommend improving the Child Tax Credit so that low-income families can fully qualify for benefits. As inflation continues to impact the economy, relief for families is needed now more than ever. Take action by going to

MINISTRY OF PRESENCE IN THE CATHEDRAL Each weekday afternoon from 1-4pm, a Cathedral parishioner sits at a welcome desk in the Cathedral to greet visitors and answer questions. This ministry has been on hiatus since Covid-19 hit in March 2020, but now we are hoping to start it up again. Volunteers typically help out one day each month. It’s a chance to spend some quiet time in the Cathedral and to be a welcoming presence to all who pass through the Cathedral’s doors. Information, Caroline Okello, or 206-654-4650.
HYGIENE ITEMS FOR OUR UNSHELTERED NEIGHBORS The St Vincent de Paul Society is seeking donations of hygiene items for Seattle’s unsheltered neighbors. Donated items will be assembled into individual hygiene kits which will then be distributed in person by SVdP volunteers several days each week to those in need. Hygiene items being sought include: hotel amenity/travel size shampoo/conditioner/lotion; bar soap; hand sanitizer; disposable razors; deodorant; lip balm; dental floss, toothbrush, small tube toothpaste; packet of personal body wipes used for basic hygiene; small packets of Kleenex; disposable paper face masks; hygiene gloves. The donation collection box is located in the Cathedral Book Store. Donations can be made whenever the Bookstore is open, Monday through Friday, 11:00am-3:00pm and after each weekend Mass.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL MINISTRY WITH THE UNSHELTERED Parishioner Ken Goddard writes: “When COVID arrived more than 2 years ago it eliminated volunteer opportunities I’d had to serve our neighbors directly/in-person. I missed the face-to-face interactions with our neighbors in need. In the spring of 2020 I learned St. Vincent de Paul Society had partnered with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) to serve Seattle’s unsheltered neighbors. Several days each week this program provides sanitation and basic human services to our neighbors living in vehicles and tents throughout our community. SPU pumps out RV wastewater tanks and buckets for RV residents while Vincentian volunteers accompany SPU on their rounds to meet in-person with those we visit to provide the basic elements of a home visit: reaching out to listen to their stories, offer care, support, referrals, and some material goods. This opportunity has made me feel I belong to a much larger community and I’ve met many wonderful neighbors as a result. Please join us as an inquirer to find out if this is a ministry in which you can serve.” Information, Ken Goddard, 206-981-7185.
