As a gift from parishioners, we are planning to put together a “Seattle to Bainbridge” basket of gift cards.  To contribute to this gift, please use the GoFundMe link at this site.  Funds will be used to buy him gift cards for Bainbridge favorites, ferry passes to visit Seattle, and a small honorarium.:

We are also putting together a book from the parish with our personal thank you’s, memories, photos and stories.  If you would like to include something, please print out the page at this link and fill up the page.  Hard copy pages are available in the church and parish office. Turn in pages in the collection basket at mass, or to the parish office. Pages can be dropped off at any time through the mail slot at our front door. All pages are needed by Wednesday, June 27.
