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.
