Take Another Look at the Catholic Church You are invited to an online Cathedral program for Catholics who have been away, and are wanting to take another look at their Church. Be part of a small zoom community, ask questions, and learn about changes in the Church. The program begins Monday, January 11, 6:30-8:00 pm, and runs for six Monday nights. Information, Rosanne Michaels, rmichaels@stjames-cathedral.org.
Fratelli Tutti: On fraternity and social friendship  In October, Pope Francis released Fratelli Tutti, an encyclical which calls us to live out our Christian duty to see the face of Jesus in our neighbors, recognizing everyone we meet as a brother or sister. On Monday, January 11 at 6:30pm, Judy Mayotte, a scholar and Cathedral parishioner, will speak on Fratelli Tutti's call to restore humanity's fraternal bond, that we are all sisters and brothers. The following week, a 4-week small group program will begin, for Cathedral parishioners to read, discuss and pray with this important teaching on human solidarity and friendship. Registration and information, Patrick Barredo, pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org.
FAITH AND RACIAL HEALING Mondays, 6:30pm-9pm starting on January 18, 2021. Through new learning from articles, videos, and resource books, the Faith and Racial Justice small group program from JustFaith Ministries lends new insights to participants' awareness of privilege and racism. By encouraging new spiritual practices and informed action, it cultivates an expanding community of Christians who work to dismantle racism in their respective contexts. This process will challenge your own thinking about racism, its causes, and its impact, while helping you discern practical steps to address it. Registration and information, Patrick Barredo, pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL THANKS YOU A young survivor of domestic violence left her family in another state in hopes of starting a new life in Seattle. She found work in a restaurant but soon lost her job when the pandemic forced her employer to lay off multiple employees. Overwhelmed by all she had suffered and lost at such a young age, she was in tears when we answered her call for help. We did our best to comfort her. Then we paid enough on her rent to keep her housed while she continued to look for work, and we referred her to other possible sources of help with food, utility bills and other necessities of life. Your financial support and your prayers of support make our outreach ministry possible - thank you! Information, Jo Ann Wiesner, 206-291-4012 or wiesnerjo@gmail.com.
