From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On Easter: Creation is the foundation of “all God's saving plans,” the “beginning of the history of salvation” that culminates in Christ. Conversely, the mystery of Christ casts conclusive light on the mystery of creation and reveals the end for which “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”: from the beginning, God envisaged the glory of the new creation in Christ.


And so the readings of the Easter Vigil, the celebration of the new creation in Christ, begin with the creation account; likewise in the Byzantine liturgy, the account of creation always constitutes the first reading at the vigils of the great feasts of the Lord. According to ancient witnesses the instruction of catechumens for Baptism followed the same itinerary.

This Week: Second Week of Easter

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
