2021 - 2022 Annual Catholic Appeal

Begin May 2021 - End April 2022

This year our parish share of the Appeal is $25,719. We have raised a total of $18,549 (pledged) so far towards our goal.  

If we exceed our goal, all payments above our share will come back to the parish in the form of a rebate to be used for paving and striping the parking lot.

To all those who have returned there Annual Catholic Appeal pledge card sent to them by the Archdioceses. Your generosity is appreciated and will help so many in the dioceses.
Please be sure to turn in your pledge envelope today or donate online at .Thank you!

We pray for our Parish: that we may show love for one another in our support of the ministries and services funded by the Annual Catholic Appeal.




Spring Clean Up

In preparation for the potential repaving of the north parking lot and the area between the rectory and parish hall, there are grass trimming, weed killing and general clean up that needs to be done. Grass between the ball field and our neighbors to the north needs to be mowed, flower beds need to be weeded. 

If you have some time available to do some grounds maintenance, bring your gloves, gardening tools and clippers. There are wheelbarrows behind the rectory. Come on your own schedule, choose a location and work for whatever time you have available. Your help with this clean up is appreciated. Thank you for helping to keep our parish grounds flourishing, and your support of St. John of the Woods.

Covid-19 Guidance

Archdiocese of Seattle

May 20, 2021   |   VOL. 2  No. 8

As you know the latest safety guidance, vaccination rates and coronavirus rates are all rapidly changing. We are keeping a pulse on all of it and balancing it with our desire to provide you with the best guidance possible.  We will continue to track the pilot parishes, how other diocese are moving forward, as well as our own local virus and vaccination rates.  We will continue to make sure our guidelines are in sync with other sectors of society.  Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we continue this work.

Masks are Safer for Now 
After much review, at this time, we will continue wearing masks in all Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Seattle. We request people wear a mask for everyone's continued health and safety.  There are still many benefits to wearing a mask, including protecting those who are unable to vaccinate, and keeping us from touching our faces and spreading a virus, which also allows us to decrease our surface cleaning. As has been standard, we recommend every parish provide disposable masks for parishioners who may show up without them.
