Pastoral Care Ministries

Anointing of the Sick is provided by the Church for those whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age.  Anyone who is seriously ill is eligible.  In old age, almost any illness takes on a serious nature.  A person may also receive the sacrament prior to a serious operation.  For more information, contact Betsy Staal, (425) 822-0295, ext. 111.

Funeral Receptions are offered by the parish after funerals held at Holy Family.  Arrangements are made as part of the overall funeral planning process (see Funeral Ministry above).  Volunteers are welcome for staffing the reception as well as for providing food items.  For more information, contact Mary Joan Nash or Janet Thonssen.

Prayer Line is a group of people committed to combining their prayer energies on behalf of those in need.  They answer God’s call to service by volunteering time in prayer for others.  The prayer requests are held in confidence.  Those requesting prayer, telephone or e-mail the Prayer Line Coordinator.  The coordinator then passes the prayer request on to the members.  For more information, contact Robert Kay (206) 355-7403.

Tribunal Advocacy for Decree of Nullity is offered to those adults who have experienced an unsuccessful marriage and are seeking to petition the Tribunal of the Archdiocese for a possible decree of nullity.  The parish has professionally trained and appointed advocates to assist any inquiring individual.  The process brings reconciliation and healing to those experiencing the pain of a failed marriage and wishing to be free to marry in the Catholic Church.  For more information, contact Betsy Staal, (425) 822-0295, ext. 111.
