Ignorance of the Scriptures is Ignorance of Christ” -St. Jerome

Ready to learn and share more about the Bible? Join our new Bible Study at any time.  The next meeting is this Tuesday, October 25, at 10am in the Fireside Room.  Led by Ted Meany, we are beginning with a few sessions on the structure and truth of the Gospels and will then, on November 8, launch an 8-part study called Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible.  This will provide a terrific overview of the timeline of the Bible so you can see the clear links between the Old and New Testaments.  The class will run indefinitely with occasional breaks for holidays or a pause between study topics. Contact Ted at the office if you have any questions (ted@stthomascamas.org).


Week of Support to Vancouver WHO Shelter:  Nov. 6-16

Together, we can protect our Church

The Archdiocese of Seattle has established a confidential telephone hotline and website for parish staff and parishioners to anonymously raise concerns about suspected unethical behavior by church personnel. You can find more information about this hotline on a poster and in brochures located in the back of the church or by going to seattlearchdiocese.ethicspoint.com. This program is run under contract by an independent third party with a long record of providing these services both in the secular world and for other dioceses.


Annual Catholic Appeal Donate Button

We have reached our Parish goal of $86,220.  THANK YOU! Funds collected beyond our Parish goal will go towards reburbishing the Fireside Room.   Please consider using the donation envelopes found in the church or clicking on the link below.

Natural Family Planning

Christ and His Church call us to holiness in our everyday lives and in and through our vocations.  In the Sacrament of Marriage, a particular kind of conjugal chastity is demanded by the nature of love and God’s order of Creation. In marriage, the two have become one and are called to continually make that gift of self-donation to the other as they strive to build up one another in faith and love.  The two, in imitating the Trinity by their union and love, also share with the Trinity in the great work of co-creation.  Part of this, of course, is the bearing and raising of children.  Marriage in many ways is oriented towards children, which are always a great good.

The couple must remember God’s dominion over Creation as they remain open to life, and must not cut these off through contraception and sterilization.  While these are illicit, the Church does allow spouses, with prayer and discernment, to plan their families in a natural way.
