From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On Giving Thanks: As in the prayer of petition, every event and need can become an offering of thanksgiving. The letters of St. Paul often begin and end with thanksgiving, and the Lord Jesus is always present in it: “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”;

- CCC 2638


This Week: Last Week before Advent

We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.


Please join us Thanksgiving morning for the Holy Mass at 9:00 am. It is not a Holy Day of Obligation, but as Fr. Steve says, it is a Holy Day. Also, please bring a non-perishable canned or boxed good for the less fortunate.

The office will be closed Thursday and Friday, but there will be a morning Mass on Friday (with visiting priest Fr. Brossamer).

Advent Penance Service

Please join us for the Sacrament of Reconciliation on December 3 at 7:00 pm. 4 priests will be available for individual confession in English or Spanish.

Please Help

The St. Philomena Library is Online!

Did you know that the St. Philomena Library is now online? There are actually over 1000 items available for checkout. Try the search box below, then come by the library in the Parish Hall after one of the Sunday morning Masses to pick up your selection.

How it works: the search engine will look for items containing all of the terms that you type into the search box. You can enter a keyword, author’s name, etc. The search engine is not case-sensitive.

Affordable Care Act Alert

If you are purchasing insurance through the Exchange, the only healthcare plans in Washington which do not subsidize elective abortions are the Premera Multistate plans. Please consider choosing one of these plans.

Also note that there is another alternative, which for many people is cheaper and better, and does not require us to subsidize abortion, sex-change operations, sterilizations, etc. Christian Healthcare Coops abide by Biblical principles and do fulfill the federal requirement to purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act:
