This Week: Second Week of Easter
|Tue:||St. Mark, Evangelist|
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.
Thank You from 40 Days for Life!
This Spring’s “Forty Days for Life March” at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Federal Way ended this week. I wish to express a note of gratitude to all the parishioners who were able to spend time in prayer and be present as a visible sign that “Life is a precious Gift from God.” Thank you for joining us and if you were unable to be on site our thanks for your prayers. Please continue to pray each day for the conversion of the hearts of those individuals contemplating the end of life, be it the unborn or elderly.
Your prayers are heard! See you in the Fall!
Shalom, Deacon Jerry

Do you think you might have a vocation to a Third Order? A Third Order is a branch of a religious order established specifically for the laity: married or single, to bring Christ into the world. In the Seattle area we have third order Dominicans, Carmelites, and Franciscans.
