WELCOME! If you are a visitor to the Cathedral, we want you to know how welcome you are — whether you have come from another part of the country, from across the world, or simply from another parish here in the Archdiocese. Thanks, in part, to the generosity of visitors like you, we are able to celebrate the Church’s liturgy here in a fitting and beautiful way. We are also able to offer a wide range of services to needy people living in the central district of our city.

ECUMENICAL ICON OF THE RESURRECTION. This weekend, St. James Cathedral is privileged once again to host a beautiful icon of Christ’s Resurrection. The icon, written by Yakov Prokofiev of St. Petersburg, was commissioned by the St. Petersburg Seattle Sister Churches Board to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their program, which encourages friendly relations between churches in Seattle and St. Petersburg. The icon was blessed by Metropolitan Vladimir and brought to Seattle in the summer of 2011. During this Easter Season, it travels around the Pacific Northwest to churches of many Christian denominations.

CHRISTIAN BROTHERS CELEBRATION. Next Sunday, May 25, at the 10:00am Mass, we will pray in a special way for and with the Christian Brothers, who have staffed O’Dea High School for 91 years.

Please mark your calendar to come and pray with the Brothers next Sunday.
