Nolan Stewart, John (Bubba) Nolan II, Hope Stehly, Emily Stamon, Beverly Fettermann

Interview with a Confirmandi

What have you learned in confirmation?

Nolan (St. George): “In confirmation I have learned the corporal works of mercy, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, how to defend myself as an adult Catholic, and a better understanding of what it means to be confirmed.”

John (St. Michael the Archangel): “The gifts of the Holy Spirit, what confirmation means, the corporal works of mercy, the five-finger catechism, and transubstantiation.”

Hope (St. Michael the Archangel): “The suffering that Jesus went through for us.”

Emily (St. Pancras): “I have learned the prayers…the Holy Trinity, and some of the sins that I did not know and are important.”

Beverly (St. Abigail): “That demons HATE Mary, that the scourging is worse than I thought, and gossip is murder.”

St. Joseph’s Confirmation will be celebrated on May 25, 2024 at 7:00 pm in Queen of Angels Church in Port Angeles.

SJ | SVdP United Way Award

Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Sequim, receives United Way Award

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Joseph Conference, was pleased to receive the LIVE UNITED Clallam United Award that recognizes exceptional volunteerism. The award states:

“Volunteers are of critical importance to all our community partners, but St. Vincent de Paul is one of only two that are entirely staffed by volunteers. The depth of this service is put into even starker relief when you consider the care and individualized approach St. Vincent de Paul volunteers take with every person or family they help. The organization’s structure allows it to meet people where they are and assist in a direct and often financial way to the unique challenges each person is facing. They truly are building “a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need.”

On behalf of my fellow Vincentians, I wish to thank the St. Joseph parishioners for their prayers and support that make our ministry possible. Ed Koszykowski, President

Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit

Vatican exhibit at QA / Starting May 15

Our parish family has been blessed with an opportunity to participate in the National Eucharistic Revival by hosting a traveling display of the Vatican International Exhibition of The Eucharistic Miracles of the World. This collection has already visited more than 3000 parishes around the world, and has been translated into many languages.

With an extensive assortment of photographs and historical descriptions, the exhibition presents some of the principal Eucharistic Miracles that took place throughout the ages in various countries of the world and which have been recognized by the Church. By means of the panels, one can “virtually visit” the places where the miracles took place. The current exhibition includes 160 panels that are used to explain 158 Eucharistic Miracles with an additional 22 country and historical panel maps.

Come and see this amazing and informative exhibit in the Gym at Queen of Angels, starting after the Wednesday Mass on May 15. Subsequent locations/dates TBA.

Archdiocese News

Partners in the Gospel UPDATES

Partners in the Gospel is a strategic pastoral planning effort taking place across the Archdiocese of Seattle to re-invigorate and renew our local Catholic Church.

Our Parish Family

  • Our parish family will include St. Joseph in Sequim; St. Anne in Forks, St. Thomas the Apostle Mission in Clallam Bay, St. Mary Star of the Sea in Port Townsend, and Queen of Angels in Port Angeles.
  • Over the next three years, the five churches will come together to eventually become one canonical parish.
  • This does not mean just one church building or campus.
  • Once the new pastors are in place they will work in consultation with the Archdiocese on any changes to Mass times, councils, services, staffing etc. This does not mean that there will be changes.
  • The Archdiocese will provide a “new parish family liaison” to help with the transition.

What parishioners can do

  • Continue to pray for this renewal effort, and specifically pray for the members of our new parish family. Look to what role you can play in making our new parish family succeed. We have prayer cards in the church and office for you to take home.
  • Lastly, please stay engaged:
    • Sign up for the Partners in the Gospel UPDATE newsletter (scroll to the bottom of that page to sign up).
    • Read Northwest Catholic magazine (registered parishioners receive this subscription for free; you can also read online)
    • Participate in upcoming prayer and fellowship opportunities.
    • If you have questions or comments about this process, please visit the Partners in the Gospel website – https://archseattle.org/partners/ Check here and in the bulletin for updates on our parish family, or contact our office with questions or comments:(360)457-2351 or email office@clallamcatholic.org.

Important Dates

  • April 6-7: Our new pastor and parochial vicars were announced at Sunday & Vigil Masses. This information is now public on NWCatholic.org, social media, etc. Click here to read more.
  • July 1: Our new priests will arrive.

2022/23 Annual Impact Report

Archbishop Paul Etienne reminds us, “Your local Catholic Church is actively sharing Christ with others in many ways – seen and unseen. In these pages, you’ll see the annual financials as part of our commitment to transparency, but you’ll also read stories about how our ministries have positively impacted people’s lives.” See God in action through His Church in Western Washington!

Called to Serve as Christ Campaign

Begun in 2019, this campaigns funds retirement and medical needs of priests and women religious, and supports individual parishes in our Archdiocese. Starting in Oct. 2020, a three-year pledge period began. Each parish will receive a share of funds donated.

Thank you so much for your generosity! With their share, Queen of Angels will upgrade the school heating; St. Joseph will make needed remodels to the rectory. Click the button below to learn more or add your pledge today!
