PARISH LISTENING SESSIONS
 

Many thanks to those who attended our two Listening Sessions this past week!  Your input is extremely helpful as we discern how to better live out our Catholic Faith in Camas and Washougal, align with the new Archdiocesan pastoral plan, and emerge from the worst of the covid restrictions.

If you were unable to attend
an in-person Listening Session,
we still want to hear from you!

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. 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.

 


Introducing the Pastoral Plan
