Message from the Pastoral Team About Relaxing of the Mask Mandate
According to the Washington State Department of Health, as of Saturday, March 12th, 2022, masking will be optional in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.
Although this is a relaxation in mask protocols, if you or your family members feel more comfortable wearing a mask, you are certainly welcome to continue doing so. As a welcoming and accepting community, we must remain respectful of others’ feelings and not judge others’ personal decisions. Father Patrick, members of the Pastoral Team who assist him at Mass, and ministers on the altar will continue to wear masks and follow Covid safety protocols during Mass. The Pastoral Team asks that you prayerfully consider your comfort level, as well as the safety of the vulnerable in our community, when you make a decision for yourself and your family members.
Sunday Lunch Program
A free Sunday Lunch is served every Sunday, from 1:00 pm – 2:30 in the St Ann parish hall. This free meal is served by a different church or civic group each week. St Ann’s turn to serve is posted in the bulletin and on the calendar below.
