Who We Are

New and Noteworthy

 

Our Sacred Heart community suffered a terrible loss with the sudden passing of our colleague, friend, and Pastoral Assistant for Pastoral Care, Mary Dickins. Mary served our community for over 25 years as a member of both the school and parish staff. Funeral arrangements are pending, and will be announced as soon as they are made available.

Though I should walk in the valley of the shadow of death, no evil would I fear, for you are with me. (Psalm 23:4)


 

 Groceries for Families Program-Assistance Requested

Sacred Heart parishioners have been graciously supporting the Groceries for Families Program at Jubilee REACH helping to provide individuals and families food security and hope. Currently, the top needed items are paper towels, laundry pods, and baby wipes. The program is currently about 30 bags of groceries short each week and could use assistance. To sign up to bring groceries, visit : https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b49a5aa2ba3fd0-jubilee.

What started as a program to help the community through COVID, is now 16+ months strong with roughly 200 families registered to receive aid weekly with groceries.

Mask Update

Based on the updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, and the Washington State Department of Health, masks will no longer be required in the Archdiocese of Seattle. Sacred Heart will not enforce mask wearing at Mass and other parish events.

We understand that removing masks will be a new experience for everyone, and some of us may not feel comfortable. We encourage everyone to be gentle and respect those among us who continue to wear a mask. We will also continue to reserve a space for people who wish to remain distanced.
