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, to help us focus on Christ as we set our priorities. 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? All that is required is praying each day that we all may carry out the mission we have received from Jesus. You will receive a prayer intention each week by text or e-mail, as well as prayers you might wish to use in your own daily prayer. Information or to sign up, Corinna Laughlin,
