2020 06 24 Open for Mass

 

To the faithful of St. Catherine,

We have been approved for the celebration of Mass inside the church, beginning this coming weekend, June 27/28. We are following all the guidelines of the Archdiocese, the King County Health Department, and recommendations from the Governor.

Therefore, online registration is limited to 50 parishioners per Mass. Mass times will be on Saturday at 5:00pm and Sunday at 9:30am. Livestream Mass will still be available on Sundays at 9:30am.

The Archbishop’s dispensation for attending Mass continues until further notice. “Anyone attending Mass does so at their own risk. Vulnerable, at-risk and otherwise concerned persons should remain home. Those who attend would follow government regulations regarding potential mandatory quarantine if a fellow attendee subsequently tests positive for COVID-19.” (WSCC document)

You MUST register for Mass by clicking on the following link:
