SITE INFO


I am in your midst as one who serves

These words from the Gospel of Luke, inscribed in the oculus high over the altar of St. James Cathedral, speak to our mission to carry out Christ’s teaching in our community. Every day, St. James volunteers reach out in love to the needy of First Hill and Downtown Seattle.

OUTREACH & ADVOCACY NEWSLETTER At the beginning of each month, a digital newsletter is sent out with news, information and stories about the Life, Peace and Justice ministries of the Cathedral. Recently, we’ve highlighted our work with immigrants, mental health services and encounters with our neighbors who are homeless. If you’d like to receive this newsletter, please send a message to outreach@stjames-cathedral.org  and ask to subscribe to the newsletter.

For the latest volunteer opportunities, please send us an email. The list below describes volunteer roles that are always needed.

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Catholic Community Services/Catholic Housing Services (CCS/CHS) are inviting St. James Cathedral parishioners to help with meals for those in need.
 
CCS/CHS now supports a just-opened 30-bed women’s shelter in Burien and a Federal Way drop-in center that welcomes 75 people each day. Both programs need hot casseroles, although sandwiches are also accepted. Contact a restaurant to deliver food or provide food yourself. Please coordinate with Patrick Barredo (pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org).
 
The St. Martin de Porres men’s shelter needs volunteers to prepare meals in their kitchen. If you’re interested, contact Jeff Cathey, the Operations Supervisor at St. Martin de Porres (206.323.6341 or jefferyc@ccsww.org).

As more meals are brought to CCS/CHS, they will need to be delivered. If you can help transport food, contact CCS Network Builder Erin Maguire (ErinMa@ccsww.org).
 
These are difficult times we live in. Any meal support you can provide for those experiencing homelessness is greatly appreciated. However, please do observe our state’s directive to stay in your home, especially if you or anyone in your household is in a high-risk group.
