A word from Fr. Tim May 24th


Dear Parishioners,

The Easter season continues for 50 days until Pentecost.  It is a time to give thanks and praise to God for the salvation that has been won for us through the sacrifice of Jesus.  All praise, glory, and honor to you Lord Jesus Christ!  Amen. 

We will continue to record the Sunday Mass for you.  We have heard from quite a few people that they appreciate staying connected to our parish through these recordings.  It is in small ways like this that we know that God is here with us and keeping us together despite the social distancing.  We are always united through the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  This is a love that has conquered sin and death, and will continue to conquer any adversity that we face.  We are so blessed that we have such a loving Savior to watch over, guide, and protect us. 

Please know of our continued prayers for everyone during this difficult time.  Please pray the prayer asking for the intercession of Our Lady of Seattle to bring this pandemic to an end, and that we may once again be able to celebrate the Mass publically. 

The Office will continue to be closed.  If you have any church business or spiritual needs please contact the parish answering service or leave a voice message, and we will respond to your call as soon as we can.  God bless you, Fr. Tim Ilgen

Since the CoVid crisis, our homeless are in a dire situation.  They have less access to running water and bathroom facilities. Due to the ongoing crisis now and with all the businesses closing, the homeless population is getting shut out of services. In response, we have combined our Sacred Heart and Saint Michael's men's shelter at Saint Michael's 7 nights a week   

As Catholics whose tradition is to serve the poor, there are many ways for you to volunteer, especially if you are NOT in the high risk category.  We could use the help!  


At Sacred Heart:  Hygiene services (open 10 am-2 pm) will be open until further notice. Still need donations. 

1)  Symptom screener to monitor the homeless during hygiene services (10 am  - 2 pm)

2) Run the showers , pass out toiletries and ensure 6 ft social distancing

3)  Make and serve lunch during hygiene services (11 am-1 pm)

4) Laundry 


Dear Parish Family,

Archbishop Etienne, the Archbishop of Seattle, has begun a pastoral plan to see what are the needs of the people of the Archdiocese.  The Archbishop wants to build a more thriving and mission-oriented Catholic community in Western Washington.  Because all Catholics share in the life and mission of the Risen Jesus, therefore your voices are critical to inform the plan.  

We are asking you to click on the link below and take the survey.   Responses are anonymous and confidential. The initial questions seek to better understand the experiences, beliefs, needs, desires and faith trajectories of Catholics across western Washington. The final section of the survey includes several opportunities for all Catholics to provide open feedback on the church’s strengths, areas for growth, and to share hopes for the new plan’s priorities. Participants should allow at least 15-20 minutes to complete the survey.  

Our goal is to achieve representative feedback from across the region, the generations, and many demographics. This would provide critical insights for the many ministries of our church and highlight opportunities to deepen engagement with Catholics.  

Thank you for your participation in this survey.

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Tim Ilgen

Archbishop Etienne has just finished recording a message to the people of the Archdiocese. In the video, he expresses that out of an abundance of caution, and despite our best efforts to slow this rapidly spreading virus down, he has suspended all public Masses effective immediately. We have not seen a contagion of this magnitude in our country for 100 years and it is important that we take it seriously.  We recognize that there are many implications to this decision and there will be additional communication forthcoming as the situation unfolds.  Here is the link to the Archbishop’s video:  https://vimeo.com/397057838/6ddaeea5b9

Mass times:

All daily and weekend Masses have been suspended until further notice. Archbishop Etienne has given a dispensation for missing the Sunday Mass. This means that it is not a sin to miss Sunday Mass under these circumstances. Please spend at least one hour on Sunday in quiet prayer, read the readings for the day, pray the rosary, watch the Mass on TV or on your computer. We will be recording the Mass at Sacred Heart and having it available on our parish website, Facebook page or YouTube channel. Please join us spiritually for Mass while you are watching it at home.
