Parish Reopening: Starting Up Ministries
Now that some counties have moved into Phase 2 and 3, parish ministries may be able to hold some in-person meetings. While we recommend keeping meetings digital, in some cases it may be more inclusive and necessary to meet in person. In order to start up ministry meetings, please review this guidance and checklistSpecial thanks to Dianne Helley from St. John the Evangelist in Vancouver and Sharon Harris from Holy Family in Kirkland for their support creating this tool.

Book of the Dead
The archdiocese will create a Book of the Dead dedicated to those who passed away from COVID-19 in the Archdiocese of Seattle. If a member of your parish community has passed away from the coronavirus, please share his or her name with Nick Schoen ( to be placed in this book. Additionally, each Friday, Archbishop Etienne is remembering these individuals during his livestream Mass.
Bells in Solidarity 
To demonstrate our solidarity with everyone who is impacted by the coronavirus, we recommend pastors ring their bells at noon. At this time, we ask that you encourage people to pray the Angelus as a family in their homes and conclude with the prayer to Our Lady of Seattle.
