Backstage tour of the Seattle Repertory Theater with Jolene Obertin

Brenda Bellamy shares a bit of Archdiocesan history

Hanging out with Big Jim

Learning about liturgical colors with John Marquez, Cathedral sacristan

Learning about the Camino with Curtis Leighton


The first project:

...a personal banner...

...that reflects your personality!

Weaving 101 with Sandra Jean

We took our inspiration from the coat of arms for the Archdiocese of Seattle

It is composed of elements from the coat-of-arms for George Washington,
after whom our state is named...

The red and the white echo President Washington's coat of arms...

...and the coat of arms of the Spanish order of St. James

...and the crosses of the coat of arms of the order of St. James

On our own pilgrimage...
