- Partners in the Gospel
Today we face many realities that impact parish life and make it difficult to fully live out our mission. This archdiocesan-wide renewal effort will help us better support vibrant, sustainable, mission-focused parish communities across the entire Archdiocese of Seattle. Learn more about this process at the Seattle Archdiocese website. https://archseattle.org/partners/ Prayer for Partners in the Gospel Gracious God, we praise and thank you for the Catholic Church in Western Washington. We praise and thank you for the women and men who have shared the joy of the Gospel here for more than 170 years. Send your Holy Spirit upon us that we might encounter your Son anew and become more effective partners in sharing the Good News of his saving love. May our partnership in the Gospel empower us to be your missionary disciples, bringing the Good News to all, especially to those who are marginalized or hurting in any way. Give us the courage, the flexibility and the vision to renew parish life, so that the good work, begun long ago, may continue among us, and one day, be brought to completion in your Kingdom, where you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

Sign Up I have been a member of St. Barbara Parish pushing past eight decades, baptized in the old church oh so long ago. The one constant over all of those years, regardless of who the Pastor was, was the living experience of Christ within the walls of church that continually beckoned to any and all to come to St. Barbara. The consistent message, “We want you, we need you to worship with us to celebrate the miracle of the Mass and all it represents.” I have observed, with glee, the appearance of many new folks showing up at St. Barbara Church recently. It sure puts a smile on my face! Gary H
