 We met our goal!

About $92,000 has been pledged or donated to the 2015 Annual Catholic Appeal on behalf of our parish. Thank you for your generosity! Remember, anything donated above our goal is returned to the parish as a rebate. It is not too late to donate. You can also check to see if you employer participates in the Matching Gift Program to make your donation go farther.


The Annual Catholic Appeal funds various charities and services throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle. Together the parishes of the Catholic Church in Western Washington work to accomplish what we cannot do alone. Your support is essential to our mission, and we thank you for your contribution.


This year we will use our rebate to reduce our parish debt and add to our savings for the priest housing fund. Visit our Stewardship Page to learn more about the many ministries your donation supports, as well as different ways you can donate.



We might be familiar with different aspects of the Catholic faith. But how does it all fit together? And what difference does it make for our lives?  "Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained" opens up the “big picture” of the Catholic faith in a way that helps us know it, live it and articulate it to others. 


Symbolon is open to all interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Join us.

At St. Theresa Parish Hall

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Mass starts at 6:00 PM, with the presentation beginning at 7. We will be finished no later than 8:20 PM. 

For more on Symbolon, session dates, and the agenda for each session, open the flyer.
