WELCOME, VISITORS! 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. For more information about the parish, to register, or to ask a question, visit our Sunday Help Desk at Coffee Hour. A Cathedral staff person will be on hand to assist you. Be sure to stop by the Cathedral Bookstore after Mass for a wide selection of Cathedral souvenirs as well as Catholic books and gifts.

FOR YOUR SAFETY. At each of the weekend Masses a Seattle police officer is present on the Cathedral campus.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL THANKS YOU. We visited a young woman with serious, chronic health issues that make it impossible for her to work. She had just moved from a homeless shelter into an apartment near the medical center where she regularly receives treatment. Her only monthly income is a small (under $200) state disability payment and food stamps, and her partner had barely started work as an entry-level pizza cook. They were sleeping on the floor. We gave them a bed, helped with rent and referred them to other charities that can provide free food, clothing and household items. Your financial support made our help possible – thank you! Information, Bob Clifford, 206-718-4158.

SUNDAY BREAKFAST VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. Now that the weather is warming up, more homeless people are opting to spend the night outside, instead of in shelters.

Start your week off right by feeding those in need. Information, Dylan Hogan.
