Many thanks to our Officers who served for the past three years, Pat Pomeroy, President - handling many changes that have occurred in the way we handle cases and a new computer system in King County.

Stewardship Opportunities

Volunteers are Needed: Please prayerfully consider volunteering as an Usher, Sacristan or Church Cleaner. A short description of these ministries follows. If you are able to help with any of these ministries please contact Elizabeth in the Parish Office (206) 242-4575 ext. 25.


The role of the ushers is to take up the collection, see that the offertory gifts are brought to the altar, pass out our weekly bulletins, and assist with other situations that might arise.


The Sacristans are responsible for unlocking and locking the church and setting up for Mass. Set up includes vessels, hosts and wine. Sacristans are scheduled to perform their duties for all Masses on weekdays, weekends and holy days. Sacristans may also be asked to set up on other occasions such as funerals.

Church Cleaning Ministry 

These ministers help keep our beautiful church tidy. Only about 30 minutes once a month is required. These volunteers work in teams of two or more, on Thursday or Friday to prepare for the weekend Masses. Light house keeping – no heavy work or vacuuming will need to be done. Responsibilities include: filling the holy water, dusting and straightening.
