Mick McHugh has been the Interim Director of the Cathedral Kitchen since July 2020. A graduate of Seattle Prep High School and Seattle University, Mick was formed by Jesuit education "from the beginning."  This strong foundation of faith in action compelled Mick to work with the marginalized, mentoring those going through recovery and rehabilitation at the Matt Talbot Center in downtown Seattle, serving in kitchens and retreat centers, and sitting on the Board of Trustees of Catholic Community Services. 
Mick has been a parishioner at St. James Cathedral since "forever”.  How does he welcome the stranger?  "You got to get out and mix it up a bit.  You can't just say your prayers. You have to be active and lead." As difficult as the work is, Blessed Mary helps him through much of it.  "I've found a way of re-adapting to pray and connect with Mary.  She is very caring, soothing, and loving."  He is inspired by Fr. Ryan's devotion, and strives to offer all guests the same level of care as our Mother.
Mick leads by example.  This helps him stay solid in his faith.  "I'm proud of what we do!  This is part of our mission, and if you just dig in and show by example, it might crack the door open a little for people to want to do what you do."  Then, he says, you know you've done the work of Christ.
