WELCOME! St. James Cathedral is proud to welcome visitors from near and far throughout the summer months. Each week a drawing for a special Cathedral gift will be made from among all the visitor envelopes used. Please write your address on the visitor envelope provided in the pew and drop it with your offering into the collection basket. Thank you for adding to the power of our prayer by your presence in our midst today.

MUSIC FOR PENTECOST 10:00 SUNDAY will feature improvisations on the chants for Pentecost by the world-renowned saxophonist, Michael Brockman.

GIFT-BEARERS THIS SUNDAY Throughout the school year we have a group of dedicated parishioners who give their Sunday mornings to help our parish children grow in their faith and deepen their relationship with Jesus. This Sunday we honor and show appreciation to the wonderful volunteers in Children’s Faith Formation (CFF) as they represent us in the assembly by bringing up the gifts. Thank you, dear Catechists, Assistants and Welcome Team, for another CFF year graced with your self-gift!

ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL We have now met the $337,040 goal set for us by the Archbishop for this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal. Every dollar donated at this point will come directly back to the parish in the form of a rebate. And we need the rebate, which will support our outreach ministries as well as our new ministry to Young Adults. Our goal for the rebate is $200,000. Right now, we are still $175,000 short of reaching it! A follow up mailing goes out next week. If you haven’t yet turned in your pledge, please consider doing so today!

ST. JAMES KNITTERS GROUP meets Monday, June 9 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm in the Fireside Room, Pastoral Outreach Center.

We are happy to teach beginners. Want to join in on the fun? Please join us on the second Monday of the month. Information, Connie Carlson, 206-518-1623.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BECOMING CATHOLIC? If you are an adult who has never been baptized, an adult who has been baptized in another Christian tradition or a Catholic who has been baptized, but not received First Eucharist or Confirmation then you are invited to participate in the RCIA, a process of initiation into the Catholic Church. You can learn more by going to www.stjames-cathedral.org/RCIA. Information, Kathleen McCabe, 206-382-2018, kmccabe@stjamescathedral. org.

ARE YOU A CATHOLIC WHO HAS BEEN AWAY FROM THE CHURCH? Our Welcome Back program provides a safe place, in the company of others who are also examining their faith, to ask questions about returning to regular church attendance, returning to the sacraments, and to learn about changes in the church. The classes are held on Monday evenings from 7pm – 9pm in Cathedral Place. Information, Kathleen McCabe, 206-382-2018, kmccabe@stjamescathedral. org.

FLORAL DONATIONS Floral donations are a wonderful way to remember a deceased loved one or commemorate an important anniversary, and at the same time enrich the whole parish community! If you would like to offer flowers, contact Jane Mueller, 206- 654-4650 or e-mail jmueller@stjames-cathedral.org.

ARE YOU A REGISTERED PARISHIONER AT ST. JAMES? Many who attend St. James regularly and consider the Cathedral their parish have never officially registered. We strongly encourage you to register.
