This Week: 5th Week of Lent
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.

40 Days for Life
St. Philomena Parish is taking part in the 40 DAYS FOR LIFE march in front of the abortion clinic in Federal Way as a visible sign of our love and support for LIFE. We are scheduled for five Tuesdays from February 24th through March 24th. We walk and pray from 9:00am to 4:00pm on those days, demonstrating our faithful commitment to LIFE. Sign-up sheets can be found on the bulletin board outside the main entrance of the Church, or you can stop by or call the office. Please walk in witness of our God who created us all in His image and likeness, and that LIFE has value from conception to natural death.

Socks for St. Martin de Porres
Our Religious Education/Faith Formation students are collecting socks for the St. Martin de Porres Men’s shelter throughout Lent. Please help by bringing clean, new (or very gently used) socks.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if all the men at St. Martin’s shelter had clean socks without holes!
Thank you for your support!
