On Saturday, June 24, 2017, Archbishop commissioned three ecclesial lay ministers, members of the Christifideles Program. This Archdiocesan program supports those who are called to lay ministry in the Church and provides formation as they undertake formal theological studies. Julianna Castro, Elodia Gonzalez, and Lynn Kittridge all completed the degree of Masters in Pastoral Studies at Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry.

Archbishop Sartain celebrated the Mass.

Christifideles graduates commit themselves to working in service of the local Church.
Julianna Castro served as intern in the Cathedral's liturgy office and now works as Baptism Coordinator for the Cathedral.

The Mass includes a special Prayer of Blessing for the Candidates.

By our baptism in Christ, we are all called to service. We all have a vocation from God to discover and to live to the full!

Congratulations, Lynn, Elodia, and Julianna! May your ministry be a blessing to you and to the people of the Archdiocese of Seattle!
