Happy Visitors

August 8, 2015

Dear St. George Parish,

We are writing to tell you of our wonderful experience last Sunday, August 2nd! We were visiting Seattle from our home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where we belong to St. Veronica’s Parish. From our hotel, we used Google to find the closest Catholic Parish and hopped a taxi for your 8:15 mass.

What a great choice we made…it was truly heaven-sent. We had a terrific time! We knew we were in for a special mass experience when the first few notes of “Morning Has Broken” were played by your excellent guitarist. The mass was a truly special and prayerful one. Father’s sermon and everything about the experience was one of the highlights of our trip to Seattle!

The most special part of our time at St. George’s was something we never saw coming. After the mass, an immensely joyous and smiling lady invited us to a social for coffee, snacks and fellowship off to the side of the church down a few steps. That was an experience that made everything about our time at St. George’s so memorable…just sharing, talking and sitting with parish members who extended themselves to us as travelers and friends.

Bless you all and St. George Parish for the time you took with us, we will never forget it.

Sincerely,

Tom and Sue Kraft
Milwaukee, WI

Feast of Our Lady of Penafrancia

The feast of Our Lady of Penafrancia, the Patroness of the Bikol Region in the Philippines, will be celebrated with a Mass on Saturday, September 19, at the St. Edward’s Church, 4213 S. Orcas St., Seattle WA 98118. The Mass starts at 10:00 AM and will be followed by a reception at the Parish Hall.

The feast day is preceded by a nine-day novena Mass that starts on Friday, September 11, also at St. Edward’s Church. The novena starts at 6:30 PM and is open to the public. Several Filipino priests of the Archdiocese are presiding at the Novena Masses. This celebration offers a good opportunity for the devotees of the miraculous Virgin of Penafrancia, affectionately called Ina (mother) by the Bikolanos, to pray and seek for her intercession.
