Lighting the Easter candle at out Easter Vigil Saturday night

Congratulations Kristi and Paul Silvernale

The Parish Council would like to recognize Paul and Kristi Silvernale for their active roles in St. Francis of Assisi parish life.
Paul and Kristi SilvernalePaul and Kristi are native to the Seattle and Burien area. Paul, having been raised in a big Catholic family that participated in parish life at Holy Rosary in West Seattle, had always dreamed of marrying a woman who shared his faith.  Kristi, a non-Catholic when she fell in love with Paul, attended RICA classes and joined the Church. They were married in St. Thomas  parish in Tukwila in 1994.  They have been members of St. Francis Parish the last 23 years.
The Silvernales have a surefire strategy for becoming involved in good works. They simply open their eyes to opportunities and ask, "How may we help?" Currently Paul and Kristi serve as Eucharistic Ministers. They help prepare the reception following the Easter Vigil.  You will see Paul ushering and assisting with the Sunday collection. Kristi was on the Parish Council for several years, including serving as its chair.  They are a couple who look around and comfortably step forward where there is a need.

At home, they have dogs and pygmy goats to shower with love.  Additionally, they volunteer with Old Dog Haven.  This is a program that finds foster homes for older dogs, providing them with a loving home as they become aged and oftentimes disabled.  Paul and Kristi’s hobbies include boating and motorcycle touring, and Kristi has run many half-marathons with her Marathon Maniacs group.

Paul and Kristi’s secret to a balanced life may well be their daily prayer together.  Time with God is their anchor.  So we thank you, Paul and Kristi, for the blessing you are in our parish lives.  Thank you for the many ways you are the hands and feet of Jesus.


Praise & Recognition

One of the six key characteristics of an engaged member of a parish is that members have received recognition or praise from someone in their parish, within the past six months. As our Parish moves forward, it will be essential that we create the climate where parishioners freely and frequently can recognize and praise the efforts of other parishioners and staff members. One step in creating this climate is the creation of this forum. Read More
