Dear Friends in Christ,
Today, the Archdiocese of Seattle is announcing a new strategic plan for the Pierce County Deanery, that will affect our parish grouping of Saint Patrick, Holy Cross, and Saint Rita of Cascia Parishes. Most notably for us, it involves Saint Rita joining a new parish that will be created in 2021.
Please read the two letters below, one from Archbishop Etienne to parishioners of all parishes affected by the new Deanery plan, and my letter to Saint Rita Parishioners. More information will be shared as we go forward.
God’s blessing to you all,
Fr. David Mulholland
