ST VINCENT DE PAUL THANKS YOU We visited a young woman who recently transferred to Seattle believing she would immediately start work as a driver. Sadly, several misfortunes happened to her. First her car was broken into and her drivers license stolen. Then a replacement license got lost in the mail. While waiting for a new license, she exhausted her savings and fell behind in rent payment. The young woman called the SVdP Helpline requesting assistance (206-767-6449). Her fortunes started turning when we were able to offer enough rent assistance to help her catch up at the same time a new license was delivered to her! Thank you!

PRAYER TEAM FOR THE NEEDS OF OUR LOCAL CHURCH Archbishop Etienne has asked each parish in the Archdiocese to establish a prayer team to pray for the mission of the Church. Pope Francis has called the whole Church to reflect on synodality (shared leadership) during the coming year. In our local Church, the Archdiocese of Seattle is in the midst of a pastoral planning process, and on the parish level, the Cathedral Vision Council has been meeting to set the parish vision for the next five years. We have much to pray for! Will you join this team? You will receive a prayer intention each week by e-mail. Information or to sign up, Corinna Laughlin,
Cornerstone Catholic Conference  The bishops of Washington State invite you to attend this virtual conference on October 30 offered in English and Spanish. Keynote addresses by Father Robert Spitzer, Gloria Purvis, Fr. Agustino Torres and Brenda Noriega. Attendees may also choose two workshops to attend. There is no charge, although donations are welcome. Registration,
TOWARDS A LISTENING CHURCH Pope Francis has called for a synod of bishops on the topic of synodality—that is, the process of listening and consultation in the Church. The preparation for the 2023 Synod starts now, with listening and conversation at the parish level. There will be opportunities to share reflections in the weeks and months to come—watch the bulletin for more information! On October 17, at the 5:30pm Evening Mass, Archbishop Etienne will mark the beginning of this important time of reflection in the Church with a special Mass in the Cathedral. All are welcome.
