St. John Parish

  • Do you have wire hangers?     Remember “no wire hangers…ever!”?  Bring yours to the parish office and they will be used to create beautiful wreaths to hang at the end of the pews for the Christmas season.
  • Join us for our 7th Annual Advent Wreath Making Event – Sunday, December 2 after 10:30am Mass     We provide all the supplies to make a wreath for your family. There will be treats, hot cider, and Christmas music to warm you up. There will also be few small crafts for the younger children. Feel free to make a goodwill donation to help defer costs. Does your high school student need service hours? We need lots of volunteers to make this a great event. Contact Mary Wiseman (or just show up) if you can help.
  • Come and experience Mercy     Reconciliation service, contemplative music, quiet prayer, adoration, confession.  Monday, December 10, 7-9pm in the Church.
  • Advent Giving Tree     Look for the Advent Giving Tree in the back of the church this month. Take an ornament from the Giving Tree and return that item unwrapped and place it under the tree by Monday, December 17.  Thank you so much for your generosity in making this a wonderful Christmas for the homeless in our community. This year your donations will be supporting Noel House, St. Martin de Porres and Treehouse.
  • What’s happening this coming week at N Seattle Catholic Youth?
  • Can you help ONE TIME with coffee & donuts this year?     We need some help with this vital ministry – the only place where parishioners can meet up and socialize on a regular basis. If you would be willing to run or help run C&D one time this year, please email Kristin Kent at Thank you!!
  • From Bill Marty’s Prayer Nuggets     Sean and Laura came home for Thanksgiving, and Sean brought his girlfriend Natalie. For three days, our home was full again, as it was for many years, our immediate family all in one place. On Thanksgiving Day, my brother and his family came over, too, and for several hours our small house was joyfully over-full. Laura led our prayer of thanksgiving before the big meal, beginning with a reading of Psalm 100. It’s one you would recognize, “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth…”  I know that Thanksgiving is now “so last week”. Before that thankful mindset is completely gone, I have a last Thanksgiving treat for you. Read A real-life miracle at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It made my girls cry, and me too, honestly. You’ll enjoy it.
