Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings! I hope that you are all enjoying the Easter Season. Pentecost will be here in a few weeks and I wanted to share with you a great Novena I found online. I encourage you to prepare for this wonderful celebration by praying 9 days before the actual celebration of Pentecost this Novena. God is generous and wants to renew the grace of Pentecost within the Church. We desperately need this grace to face the challenges before us. Isn’t it great to know that God will provide exceedingly and abundantly for all of our needs (cf. Philippians 4:19).

Please join me now in support of the Catholic Church in Western Washington by giving to the 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal Campaign! Each year at this time, we pause and consider all the good that is done because we give: the homeless are sheltered; the elderly are cared for; our seminarians are prepared for future ministry, and so much more. Great things are accomplished in the name of Jesus! You will be receiving mailings and will hear a witness talk on the weekend of May 7-8th. Let’s exceed our goal because all of the additional monies come back to the parish and are used to help us fulfill our mission at St. Brendan parish.

Please watch the video below to see how your support of the Annual Catholic Appeal builds up the Archdiocese and celebrates God’s goodness!
