March 25, 2020

Dear Parishioners of Saint Teresa of Calcutta,

I am writing to you on the Feast of the Annunciation. The Church celebrates this day because it marks the occasion when Jesus was miraculously conceived by the Blessed Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit. This day is also very special in the life of our parish because it marks the anniversary of the dedication of our church. We opened our doors for the first time on March 25th, 2012. That celebration was beautiful and, on a personal note, it was one of the best days of my life.

It was therefore difficult to hear that the Governor’s “Stay home – Stay healthy” order goes into effect today. We don’t know how long it will be until we can gather again as a community in our spiritual home. However, I believe we all understand that it is in the common good that social distancing be enforced until this disease passes us by. As your pastor, I ask that you observe Governor Inslee’s “Stay home – Stay healthy” policy.

Having said that, the parish is not closing. I am still available for your pastoral needs and emergencies. My preferred method of communication for scheduling purposes is through email. As always, an emergency phone number is on my parish voicemail.

While I am not permitted to celebrate Mass with our entire community, I am permitted to have seven or less parishioners assist me in livestreaming Mass. For the health and safety of everyone involved, these parishioners must be in good health, under the age of 60, and not vulnerable to illness in any way. If you would like to be scheduled to assist at a livestreamed Mass, please contact me via email

I invite everyone to participate in these livestreamed Masses by viewing them on the Saint Teresa of Calcutta Instagram: SaintTeresa_Woodinville. Mass times are 9 AM, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The recordings of these masses will be uploaded by noon on these days and accessible through the parish website. Sunday Mass will be livestreamed Saturday evening at 7 PM and uploaded and accessible on our website by 9 AM Sunday morning. We will be continuing our livestream of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3 PM each day. Come join us! 

Even though we cannot schedule any gatherings under the governor’s order, the church can still be open for those in good health who wish to simply pray privately in the church while observing social distance. On Saturdays, the church will be available for private prayer from 4 PM to 6 PM. On Sundays, the church will be available for private prayer from 9 AM to Noon. During weekdays, the church will be available for private prayer by appointment.

Many of our parishioners will be spending considerable time at home. I invite you to take advantage of the many ways you can stay connected with our parish and each other through the opportunities available on our website. Also, please keep supporting Camp Unity Eastside and our Saint Vincent de Paul ministry. If you know someone who lives alone, particularly those who are elderly, please make sure they have someone to talk to on a regular basis. This is going to be a very lonely time for a lot of people. Now more than ever, we need to remember to pray for one another.

One final thought, there is another reason March 25th is special in the life of the Church. It is exactly nine months until Christmas, the day we celebrate Jesus’ birth. I mention this because, as wonderful as Christmas is for all of us, there would be no point in celebrating it without our Easter hope. As we make our way towards Holy Week, may our faith in the Risen Lord give us the grace we are going to need to make it through these difficult times.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
