Called to follow Jesus and imitate His way of life

 

ASH WEDNESDAY MASSES 
FEBRUARY 17, 2021
9:OO AM AND 7:00 PM IN THE CHURCH



LOOKING FOR ASSISTANCE TO STREAM MASSES
 
You may have noticed we were able to upgrade our production resources for the streamed Sunday Mass, thanks to a donation from a parishioner’s company. 
 
We currently have two parishioners who handle the broadcast each week, and would like to add four more to this ministry.  If you have an interest in broadcast audio/video production, this may be the ministry for you.  All training will be provided and the commitment is just a couple hours, one or two Saturday mornings per month.
 
This could be a great opportunity for teens looking to enhance their college resume or fulfill service hours, or adults looking to learn or expand production skills. If you’re interested, please contact Mark Adrian at the parish office: 206-524-8800 ext. 104
