Message from the Pastor
Dear Parishioners, Alumni and Friends:
We celebrate our 125th anniversary year with grateful hearts, and we thank God for his innumerable blessings to Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish these many years. It is here that generations of Catholics have grown in faith together. It is here that we have encountered the living Christ through countless baptisms, the Eucharist, confessions, weddings, and funerals. It is here that we have offered acts of kindness to the poor and marginalized, and served as a welcoming community to visitors from near and far. Read more...
In 2014, Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church begins its 125th year serving Catholics in Seattle and celebrates its status as the city’s oldest existing parish. In short, Sacred Heart Parish has quite the storied history – one of endurance, commitment, service and above all, faith. Our story began in 1889—the same year that Washington was admitted as the 42nd state in the United States and the great Seattle fire ravaged through the downtown area. Read more...

for our parish since 1889. We humbly pray that you continue to grace us, especially during this 125th anniversary year.
May we always be grateful for the dear souls whose faith has blessed our parish

And may Mary, our Mother of Perpetual Help, and all the Redemptorist saints lead us day by day to you and help us remain faithful in serving you and your people.
In gratitude we pray, Amen!
