On Sunday, July 24, 2016 we celebrate the feast of our patron, St. James the Greater, with solemn Masses and a fun parish picnic. Here, one of our youth servers carries in the procession a 16th-century reliquary bust of James, containing a relic of the apostle.

At the conclusion of the 10:00am and 12 Noon Masses, an 18-foot high puppet of James the Greater makes an appearance. The puppet is modeled on those used in Spain during the celebration of James the Greater.

The weather was absolutely perfect!

Hundreds crowd on Terry Avenue for hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream, and much more!

Face painting. A unicorn on one side...

...a rainbow on the other!

A huge thank you to our great team of volunteers, under the direction of Larry Brouse, Anna Horton, and Stephen Pace. It was a great team this year!

The band was terrific! Special thanks to Jeff Davies and The St. James All Star Blues Band!!

Waiting in line for the pinata...

The Seattle Fire Department made an appearance. Here our new Youth Minister, Curtis Leighton, models a lieutenant's helmet!

The balloon bow and arrows worked pretty well! :)

Happy Feast Day!
