You are invited to the 11:00 am Mass on July 27 for a special event. Archbishop Sartain will dedicate and bless a beautiful tabernacle, which will be placed in the sanctuary. Father Christiansen wrote in last week's bulletin that "the tabernacle within the main body of the church signals for us the actual presence of Jesus... [and] the presence of the tabernacle within the center of the sanctuary will be a powerful reminder for each of us that Jesus is the center of our lives and that we are never alone; he is always present and waiting for us." The new tabernacle was donated and fully refurbished by members of our parish family.
The Catholic Daughters' Rummage Sale is August 1st to 3rd (Friday through Sunday) starting at 9:00 am. You may donate clean, unbroken items on Saturday & Sunday, July 26 & 27. No furniture, large appliances or magazines will be accepted. See the bulletin for more information.
There will be a change to the look of the Online Giving platform starting July 23. Improvements include an easier-to-use interface and a quicker way to donate to special funds. Sign up is easy and you will not be charged to sign up or use online giving. Please click this secure Online Giving link (or logo in the left column) to get started.
Our St. Vincent de Paul volunteers are looking for someone with a truck to help deliver furniture or beds to clients in our parish area. This would free up the delivery charge of $50 to be used on other necessities. If you have a truck and don't mind spending a little time & gas money to help a worthy cause, please contact the parish office. Thank you to everyone for your continual financial support and donations of non-perishable foods to the pantry.
We also have a mission to help homeless seniors in downtown Seattle with meals and necessities. The Catholic Community Services' Lazarus Day Center provides 2 meals a day and other services such as showers and laundry. We have been making and delivering sandwiches on the First Friday of the month for years. Recently a slight change has been made to the program. Lazarus now has volunteers to make sandwiches and would like us to donate the sandwich makings: bread, lunch meat & cheese, etc. They are also in need of travel-size personal care items. If you would like to donate something, please bring it to the Social Hall before the 8:00 am Mass on the FIRST FRIDAY of each month. Your contributions are appreciated.
SYMBOLON: The Catholic Faith Explained
All are welcome to Tuesday night meetings in the Fireside Room, June 24 to September 30 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm with Deacon John Amlag. The Symbolon series is a compelling presentation of the Catholic faith. Through beautifully crafted teaching and state-of-the art video, author and speaker Dr. Edward Sri leads a team of dynamic teachers who provide a clear and comprehensive understanding of what the Catholic Church teaches and how to live it. This is a great introduction to Catholicism for anyone considering RCIA, or those who just want to learn more about the Catholic Faith.
St. Pius X is a Perpetual Adoration church. Please feel free to stop by any time to adore our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. The chapel is a quiet place of silent prayer and meditation. We are in need of a few committed Adorers in the Adoration Chapel. Please see the Sunday Bulletin for more information.
