Sunday, January 24, 2021 -- The 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

ON THE COVER  "I will make you fishers of men." West nave stained glass window, St. James Cathedral. Charles Connick, artist, 1916-1918.
Floral offerings are a wonderful way to remember a deceased loved one, celebrate an anniversary, or give thanks for a prayer that has been answered. Information, Micki-Jo Palmer, mpalmer@stjames-cathedral.org  or 206-622-3559.
WEEKDAY MASSES OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Each day from Monday through Saturday, an 8:00am Mass is celebrated in the Cathedral. All are welcome to attend without prior registration.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL THANKS YOU A family ran a catering business. COVID caused their business to collapse, which meant that suddenly no one in the family had jobs or income. One of the men in the family eventually called the SVdP Helpline (206-767-6449) because he was having trouble believing that he might qualify for unemployment benefits. He could not wait any longer to figure that out because his rent was due and no one in his family could help him pay it. Our Cathedral Vincentians helped pay his rent, relieving his anxiety and giving him a little more time (and our encouragement) to track down those unemployment benefits and look for another job. Your donations to SVdP at St James make our help possible – thank you! Information, Jo Ann Wiesner, 206-291-4012 or wiesnerjo@gmail.com.

NEW! CARE CALLS MINISTRY The Need: Due to COVID-19 there is an epidemic of loneliness in our communities. A great number of people suffer mental and physical consequences from isolation and loneliness. We see this in the world around us and in our own parish. The Response: St. James Cathedral Mental Health and Wellness Ministry (MHWM) has initiated a new ministry to help alleviate loneliness and establish connections with parishioners who may be isolated or lonely. Care Calls: Care Calls is outreach to people who live alone or have little connection with people. Volunteers phone identified parishioners on a regular basis to offer listening and companionship. Calls will connect people who are lonely to people who have time to listen and chat. The volunteers who become callers are individuals who understand the call of Christ to care for our brothers and sisters and want to make a difference in someone's life. They have the time to make regular calls and build relationship. They can also provide supportive reminders that help with everyday life, like remembering to take medication or keep medical appointments. Care Callers are volunteer phone friends, serving others because their hearts are in the right place. In doing so, they may even fill a void in their own lives. How you can help: Please let us know of someone you think would benefit from and be open to receiving a regularly scheduled Care Call from a MHWM volunteer. If you are interested in becoming a MHWM volunteer and joining Care Calls ministry, or would like more information, contact Nancy Granger, 206-382-4269 or ngranger@stjames-cathedral.org.
