Stolen identities and the Archdiocese of Seattle

Our Archdiocese of Seattle has fallen victim to a data breach that has impacted some employees and volunteers from various parishes and schools.  Those affected have had their identity stolen and fraudulent tax refunds filed with the IRS using their social security numbers.  It is believed that the data that was compromised came from the database of background checks conducted by the Archdiocese for all employees and volunteers that have to go through a background check.  If you have undergone a background check as a part of your volunteering at Sacred heart or some other parish, you are urged to contact the IRS to check if a tax return has already been filed in your name.  To check go to http://www.irs.gov/Indi

And now we enter the Holiest Days of the Year

This Sunday is Palm Sunday or more officially: Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord.  This is the day when we celebrate Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem followed by crowds waving palms.  Then we celebrate the fact that Jesus' true kingship was shown not in processions but on the cross, on which hung the Savior of the World.  Our Mass times for Palm Sunday are 5 pm Saturday, 8 am & 10 am in English and 1 pm in Spanish on Sunday.

We treasure... We celebrate... You are invited...

Stewardship is the faith-filled understanding that all we have and all that we are is a gift from God - our time, our talent, our money and even the gift of life itself. Psalm 111 asks, "How can we make a return for the goodness of God?"  We show our gratitude for these gifts by returning a portion of them back to God.  In the end, the sharing of our time with God, the giving of a portion of our treasure to support the needs of others and our church, the use of our talents to build up God's kingdom here in our midst are all expressions of our gratitude to the One who have given us everything.  Thank you, Lord!
