Sacred Encounters

  • On March 31st, we launched our new Sacred Encounters ministry. This group of volunteers meets each Wednesday to walk the streets around downtown Seattle, building relationships with our un-housed sisters and brothers, and providing much-needed survival items to those in need.
    Christ Our Hope parishioners have pulled together to make sure that each week this year as we greet our friends on the street we’ve had at least 50 fresh PBJ to hand everyone who wanted one. We also collect needed "survival" items for this effort thanks to our generous parishioners. 
    Sacred Encounters allows our paired parish community to better be a part of what Pope Francis calls a Culture of Encounter with those suffering on the peripheries. The smiles brought to the faces of our friends are the presence of Jesus himself among us.
