are a group of Seattle area young adults in our twenties and thirties
who come together to share our Catholic faith. Each month we gather for
a spirituality event, a service event, and a social event. We are always
happy to meet new people. Please consider joining us for an upcoming
Sunday Evening Advent Reflections
Starting on Sunday, November 30, the young adults will meet in the Rectory
Parlors at 7pm on each Sunday in Advent. Come for a quiet reflection on the meaning of
this season that is too often overlooked amidst the busyness and consumerism of December.
To commemorate and learn from a time when the Jewish people awaited the Messiah, we will
explore what it means to invite Christ into our lives today. We will use scriptural
readings as well as the works of more recent Catholic authors such as Thomas Merton and
Richard Rohr, and light snacks will be provided.
Young Adult Advent Challenge: Collect 2,015 Pairs of Socks for People Experiencing Homelessness!
The St. James Cathedral young adults have been tasked with collecting 2,015 pairs for socks this Advent
as we prepare to enter the new year. All the socks will go towards agencies in Seattle that perform vital
services for people experiencing homelessness in our community. Help is needed to staff a collection booth in Coffee Hour
after the 8am, 10am, and noon Masses on the four Sundays of Advent Please send an email
if you are interested in helping this important ministry.
First Friday Taize and Dinner on December 5
Come to the Cathedral at 6:30 for Taizé, a meditative and
powerful prayer service. Afterwards, we'll meet at the north entrance of the
Cathedral to decide on a local spot for dinner.
Service Event at Treehouse on Saturday, December 13
Treehouse Wearhouse is an organization committed to bettering the lives of foster kids. One of the many ways it does this is through its
Wearhouse - a unique store where foster children shop for free for new and gently used clothing and other essentials. More than 2,000
foster children shop at this store for the things they need and want! Join us Saturday, December 13, 1pm-4pm, as we help sort, tag, and
restock the merchandise, getting the Wearhouse ready for the Holiday shopping days! RSVP is required: please
send an email
if you are interested.
Third Sunday Wine and Cheese Reception on December 21
Join us in the Rectory Parlors after the 5:30pm Mass (around 6:30pm) on December 21 for some wine, cheese, and
Christmas treats! This is a monthly event, so if you can't make it this time, we will meet on January 18.
Greening of the Cathedral on Monday, December 22
The young adults traditionally help to decorate the Cathedral in full Christmas fashion! At 6:30pm on Monday, December
22, we will meet in festive spirits to prepare this sacred space to celebrate Christmas. Pizza will be provided for your
efforts! RSVP is required: please send an email
if you are interested.
