From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On Mary‘s Queenship: “Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.”

- CCC 966


Featured Retreat: Forty Weeks: An Ignatian Path to Christ, 8/10-12

This Week: 21st Week in Ordinary Time

We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.

Rite of Christian Initiation

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your spouse became Catholic? Do you have a family member, best friend or co-worker who has asked what being a Catholic is all about? Are you Catholic but have been away from the Church for some time? We have an answer for all of your questions here at St. Philomena. It is called the RCIA program.

There is no pressure; come and learn what we are about and decide if you wish to continue. Classes begin Tuesday September 15, 2015 from 7:00pm to 8:30 pm in the Upper Conference Room. Call the parish office at 206-878-8709 for more details.

Youthgroup Retreat

We had a great time on our summer youth retreat at St. Martin’s University last weekend. Deacon Jerry, Joan Glaman, Fr. Woodland, Dario and Heather Mobini (and family), and several young people from our youth group joined over 350 other participants in a variety of activities over the course of 4 days for the youth conference. We prayed in front of an abortion facility, attended workshops led by priests, religious, and lay people from our archdiocese and around the country, engaged in small group discussion and Mass each day. Thank you to all that were able to attend AND thank you for your prayers (past, present, and future)! May God bless us all!!

Read Laudato Si'

“... As this title makes clear, the pope’s letter praises God for the gift of creation and reminds us that every human person is a part of creation, with inherent dignity and deserving of our respect and care...” -Archbishop J. Peter Sartain
