Welcome To

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish

UPDATE on protocol for Mass this weekend (5/16):

As you know, this week the CDC indicated that fully vaccinated people are no longer required to wear masks in certain settings. This was a decision that our local government guidance supported effective yesterday, May 13, 2021.   As we continue to learn how to live around Covid-19 as a parish community, I am going to ask for your patience and understanding for one more weekend.  While I would like to offer an unmasked section at Mass this weekend, logistically we are unable to meet the requirements without a vaccinated section.  We ask for your support in upholding our current guidelines of masks and social distancing.  We will still  have an opportunity for people to self-select to sit together, but please continue to wear your mask during Mass for this weekend.  This will allow enough time to receive additional guidance from the Archdiocese of Seattle and explore options that will not further divide our parish community.  Thank you so much for your grace and understanding as we deliberately move to a better way of celebrating together. 


In Christ+

In addition, we need your help. We are very short on ushers to help greet and seat people for the weekend Masses. It’s easy but requires time, typically 30 minutes prior and 20 minutes after Mass. Our goal is to have enough people on the team so that each person only works once a month or once every two months. It’s a misperception to think we have enough now. The few we do have are working every single weekend. At this point we do not have enough volunteers to support overflow seating and therefore may have to turn people away if we are at capacity inside the Church. Your help would provide a more welcoming environment for all who want to attend Mass in person. Signing up and training are easy. Contact the office to volunteer, please.


Livestream 8:30am Mass, 5/16/21
