A Note from Mr. Fuerte

Dear Families,


I hope you all enjoyed a peaceful and rejuvenating first week of Lent and mid-winter break. Last week marked the beginning of Lent, and I wish to discuss the significance of "Prayer." This year, I have dedicated myself to daily prayer and have been following some weekly Lenten Reflections. Prayer holds an important place in my life, and its strength has the power to uplift my spirits, particularly in challenging times. The Seattle Archdiocese has a dedicated Lent webpage offering valuable insights on weekly reflections, motivation, renewal, and prayers. As we progress through Lent, I urge each of you to take a moment in your day to pray. This practice will aid in reflection and self-renewal during this Lenten period.


Entering the second week of Lent, I would like to discuss the topic of Fasting, one of the three spiritual disciplines of Lent. Fasting complements one's prayer life significantly. It also entails detachment – distancing oneself from something to which they have grown excessively attached. In my case, it's my fondness for sweets. I realize that I have held a strong attachment to sweets for a considerable time. Fasting serves to reclaim spiritual fortitude and balance in one's life. By denying ourselves certain desires and needs in minor ways, we can cultivate self-discipline and the ability to forgo momentary comfort for a greater, more significant objective. What are you excessively attached to? For your children, could it be their phones or devices? Let us use this Lenten period to detach ourselves from our excessive attachments and contemplate our faith and dedication to God.


As Lent beckons us to conversion through the three pillars of prayer, almsgiving, and fasting, I am delighted to inform you that through almsgiving, we managed to raise over $1,500 during our Ash Wednesday Rice/Beans Lunch. We are thrilled to donate this $1,500 to the New Bethlehem Programs and Standing with Haiti.

Have a blessed weekend,

Mr. Mike Fuerte

A Note from Fr. Gary & Parish Happenings

Dear Friends at St. Louise,

Catholic advocacy on issues that implicate or affect our faith is important. For longer than I have been a priest, every Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Seattle has worked hard to protect children and other vulnerable populations, and to ensure a safe environment for them and for everyone in all the ministries of our Church. Every volunteer who works with minors or other vulnerable populations, all members of the clergy, and all staff members must go through Safe Environment training...
