The Synod is underway: sign up for a session
What is your dream for the Church?
  • “I didn’t plan on sharing my story at first, but the others were so honest and heartfelt that I really was given the courage by being in this group. It was so powerful.”
  • “I am hopeful about this process. I think the Holy Spirit can do more than we ever imagined. We can be cynical, but this is different, this is a new moment.”
  • “Painful/powerful/wonderful. The Holy Spirit is alive and well.”
Every member of the Cathedral community is invited to participate in the worldwide Synodal process initiated by Pope Francis. “Every encounter–as we know–calls for openness, courage and a willingness to let ourselves be challenged by the presence and the stories of others…. the experience of encounter changes us; frequently it opens up new and unexpected possibilities” (Pope Francis). Sign up online to attend ONE gathering, and share your dream for the Church:

ALL CATHEDRAL READS BOOK CLUB Recently, our parish Sponsor Circle Team welcomed two refugee families from Afghanistan. Under the direction of the St. James Immigrant Assistance Program, we helped these families integrate into American culture, find the resources they and their children need, and provide English language tutoring. To help welcome these families, and better understand their experience, the Immigrant Assistance Program is sponsoring an “All Cathedral Reads” book club about Afghanistan entitled The Sewing Circles of Herat by Christina Lamb. The book chronicles the courage and ingenuity of the Afghan people during the first rule of the Taliban in the early 2000s. The book is readily available, and there will also be some copies in the Cathedral bookstore. Parishioners will be invited to participate in a discussion of the book May 24 at 6:30pm on Zoom. Registration, Christopher Koehler,
ST VINCENT DE PAUL VISITS A NEIGHBOR LIVING WITH ILLNESS A middle-aged woman made multiple life-style changes after being diagnosed with stage 3 liver disease. Motivated by love for her son who is now in his teenage years, she has outlived the initial prognosis given to her by six years. She attempts to get work to supplement her disability income, but finds it challenging to find a job compatible with limitations caused by her illness. Needing help for one month’s rent, she called the SVdP Helpline requesting assistance (206-767-6449). With your help, we were able to pay enough of her rent to give her relief. Thank you!
