Life Teen (grades 8-12)

Our youth group for those in grades 8-12 just started up, and will be meeting on Sundays in October in the Family Center at 6:30pm.

Life Teen is an international youth ministry that begin in 1985 in Arizona and is now in over 1,800 parishes. Our mission is to lead teens and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus and His Church through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother. If you’d like to learn more check out:

Every session has a specific focus that offers teens opportunities to learn, reflect, and grow together in friendship with one another. We also have a lot of fun! We welcome youth from grades 8 through 12, those who attend public school, private school, parish school, or home school, and those who attend other parishes — all are welcome.

Prayer of Repentance & Healing

The findings of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury and the news of abuse by Archbishop McCarrick have devastated the Church in recent days and have left many Catholics feeling deeply angry, disturbed, and hurting.

Archbishop J. Peter Sartain and auxiliary bishops Eusebio Elizondo and Daniel Mueggenborg invite all the faithful to join in this service on Thursday, October 4 at 7pm at St. James Cathedral in which we will pray for all victims of clergy sexual abuse, ask forgiveness for the sins of action and inaction on the part of Church leaders, and pray for the renewal the Church needs to protect the vulnerable and proclaim Christ’s Gospel with transparency and integrity.

This service will mark the beginning of a Novena of Prayer to Mary, Mother of the Church throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle. All are encouraged to join the novena, beginning on the evening of October 4, and concluding with the weekend Masses on October 13 and 14.

School is starting!

It is hard to believe that we are at the beginning of another school year! St. Alphonsus Parish School returns on Tuesday, September 4.

Please note that this means that daily Mass on Tuesday, September 4 will be at 9am for the first day of school. Then school Masses will resume at 8:45am for all Tuesdays during the school year (except for school holidays and weeks with holy days).
