St. Alphonsus is located in the heart of Seattle’s historic and hip Ballard neighborhood on 15th Avenue NW near NW Market Street. Like the Ballard area, St. Alphonsus’ Parish community is made up of a wonderful mix of Catholics of all ages from a variety of backgrounds. We offer many ministries and facilities that serve our diverse community.
Our church is a true jewel complete with fantastic French stained glass throughout, historic icons, and a rare, large and world-renowned pipe organ. We also have a newly renovated Adoration Chapel that is open several days a week.
Saint Alphonsus Parish School is an accredited Catholic School with a preschool Montessori program through 8th grade. Our school provides excellent instruction in all core subjects as well as in Spanish, art, music & PE. Beyond the school day, students participate on CYO athletic teams, band, science club, CREATE art class, & drama to name just a few of the enrichment opportunities.
In addition to our beautiful church we have a spacious Family Center across the street which is well suited for receptions, parties, etc. The Family Center also includes a state-of-the-art industrial sized kitchen. Our gym plays host to a number of parish and parish school activities like CYO.
