(Cost: Free - bring a lunch!) Call Eric 206-423-9906. Permission waivers available on Faith Formation Office door.

Eucharistic Minister Training:  Saturday, June 30th at 3 pm  I am not worthy.  Often I hear that response when asked about becoming a Eucharistic Minister.  We are all not worthy to serve the Precious Body and Blood of Christ, but Jesus, who died on the cross for us, makes us worthy.  It is only through Grace poured out that we are able to serve.  If you are a confirmed Catholic, interested in serving the Precious Body and Blood of Christ to others at communion, please join us for training June 30th at 3 pm in the church.  Training will include the 5 pm Saturday Mass.  Sign up at the back of the church to ensure enough materials for everyone.  Eucharistic Ministers choose a mass to serve once a month.  Commitment is for 1 year.  Any Questions:  Mary Kay Elsner 253-630-3607 or
