Nagel will continue to preside as Pastor at St. Monicas on Mercer Island, where he has served for the past year. Fr. Nagel will celebrate Masses with our parish community on the first weekend of each month. He was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Seattle in 1997 and has served at parishes in Tacoma, the Olympic Peninsula, and Pastor of Holy Family Parish in Kirkland. He was born and raised in the Northwest.
Fr. Akor has spent previous summers at Sacred Heart and is from Niger state, the north-central part of Nigeria. He was ordained in 2008 for the Catholic Diocese of Minna and has worked at various parishes in the diocese, including the pastor of St. Mary Catholic Church, Suleja, Nigeria.

Catholic News Service- How to Give to Ukraine
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.
