Video from Archbishop Etienne addresses sacraments 
and parish openings during coronavirus

As COVID-19 restrictions begin easing in the state, Catholics in Western Washington should remain patient, stay vigilant and keep their focus on Jesus while awaiting the return of public Masses, Archbishop Paul D. Etienne said in a May 7 video message.

“Please keep the Lord a priority,” the archbishop said. “Please consciously be aware of his presence and how he is sustaining us during these days."


Highlights
  • Other dioceses are starting to open up, but our situation is different.
  • We are at the epicenter of COVID-19 and must be more patient and vigilant.
  • The Lord can help us keep all things in proper balance and perspective.
  • Bishops have initiated communications with the governor’s office on a plan to reopen parishes and make sacraments available. 
  • In the meantime, a team of priests and leaders are determining how the governor’s “drive-in spiritual services” best applies to our parishes.
  • To minimize risk of exposing others, please don’t travel to other states where Masses are being offered.
  • Many of our churches remain open for prayer.
  • Gratitude to priests for making livestream Masses, confession and
    anointing available.
  • Please be patient, pray, stay close to the Lord and Our Lady.
