Sunday, November 22, 2020 -- The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

On the cover  During the month of November, we remember all our beloved dead. In a special way, we remember and give thanks for Cathedral benefactors who have left legacy gifts to the Cathedral.
FLOWERS ON THE ALTAR are offered by the Hsieh and Byrd families in honor of the 15th anniversary of James Byrd’s death.
MASS OF THANKSGIVING DAY AND FOOD DRIVE In keeping with a beloved parish tradition, we will have Mass at 9:30am on the morning of Thanksgiving Day. Register to attend in person at the Cathedral website, or join in the livestream! As always, you are invited to bring non-perishable food items with you to share with the needy in our community. This year, because of the limitations on the size of our gathering, we are collecting items all week. You can bring items with you to Mass on the weekend of November 21-22, or drop them by the office between 9am and 5pm on November 23, 24, and 25. Or bring them with you to Mass on Thanksgiving morning, November 26.
WEEKDAY MASSES OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Monday—Thursday and Saturday, the 8:00am Mass is now open to the public without prior registration. On Tuesdays, 8:00am Mass is followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, concluding with rosary at 12 Noon.
CONFESSIONS are heard in the Cathedral Chapel from 10:00am–11:00am on Saturday mornings.
Vespers and benediction on Sunday afternoons at 4:00pm is open to the public. No advance registration required.
Free Thanksgiving Meals Freland Tamales in Green Lake is offering a humble Thanksgiving Food Bag that can feed 3 to 5 people. Sign up at https://www.frelardtamales.com/thanksgiving.html. The Cathedral Kitchen will be open on Thanksgiving Day, serving traditional Thanksgiving dinner, from 4pm to 4:30pm, to-go only.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL HELPLINE During the pandemic, the SVdP Helpline may be able to refer you to sources of aid if you need help paying your rent or electricity bill or getting enough food or other basic necessities of life. If you live in Seattle or elsewhere in King County, please submit your request for help online at https://svdpseattle.org/get-help/online-help-request-form/ anytime or by calling 206-767-6449 between 8am and 3pm Monday through Friday. Especially if you cannot handle a growing rent debt because you lost your job or had your hours reduced, please contact the Helpline. It is better to start seeking help now rather than waiting until the temporary eviction moratorium ends, when so many more people are expected to need help, too. Information, Jo Ann Wiesner, 206-291-4012 or wiesnerjo@gmail.com
Dorothy Day: The World will be saved by beauty Tuesday, December 8, 11:30am. Kate Hennessy, author of this intimate portrait of Dorothy Day, shares memories and lessons learned from her grandmother, the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.

Copies of Hennessy’s book are available in the Cathedral Bookstore. Registration, Patrick Barredo, pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org.

PARISH REMEMBRANCE Throughout the year, because we are the Cathedral Church, we remember in prayer at Mass and Vespers each of the parishes and missions of the Archdiocese of Seattle on a Sunday near their feast day. This week we pray for the parishes of St. Margaret in Seattle, St. Andrew in Sumner, St. Columban in Yelm, and Vietnamese Martyrs in Tukwila.
