Registration cards can be found in the vestibule. If you are not sure whether or not you’re registered, call the Parish Office, 206-622-3559

BAPTISM OF INFANTS and YOUNG CHILDREN (under the age of 7) is celebrated monthly at one of the weekend Masses. To prepare for this most important sacrament, parents and godparents must participate in a series of classes to update their understanding of baptism, to reflect on their responsibility to guide their children in the practice of the faith, and to learn about the many ways our parish supports families. Please allow at least two months for preparation. Information, Margaret Lynch, mlynch@stjames-cathedral.org.
