Holy Family, Kirkland (https://www.hfkparish.com)

Friday, May 10th:
Today was St. Damien's feast day. There was a school Mass today where they were celebrating first communion, but it was not a "relics event". There was also grandparents tea and afternoon "relics" classroom visits today.

Saturday, May 11th:
The "main event" for the relics was Mass at the parish at 8:40 AM.

The pictures below include one from the school Mass, two from the school classroom visits, veneration pictures of families and individuals who gave permission, and the relics leaving the church by the host family members.

  

 
   

 

St. Thomas Aquinas, Camas (https://www.stthomascamas.org)

Tuesday, May 14th:
There was a 6 PM Mass and veneration at the parish.  The last picture is the family that processed in with the relics.

 

 

St. Joseph, Vancouver (https://www.stjoevan.org)

Wednesday, May 15th:
There was a talk/visit with the kids from the school, and an 8:30 PM Mass and veneration at the parish. The first four pictures are photos that the school took of the kids, which were also posted to the school's Facebook page.  The last two pictures are from the parish.

   

 

St. Mary, Anacortes (https://www.stmaryanacortes.org)

Thursday, May 16th
St. Marianne took a very special detour today. We were invited to attend the Native American "Blessing of the Fleet & First Salmon Ceremony at Swinomish". I have the holy water container and Fr. Mel Strazicich has St. Marianne wrapped in a lei and adorned with the female cedar.  After the blessing, a member of the fleet will each sail in one of the four directions: north, south, east, or west. 

There are also pictures from the 5 PM parish prayer service and talk. The family in the second-to-the-last picture processed in with the relics and are members of the Native American St. Paul’s Parish (the church is shown in the last picture), where Fr. Mel is the pastor as well.

 
 
 
 

 

St. Andrew, Sumner (https://www.standrewsumner.org)

Friday, May 17th:
There was a 6 PM veneration, Mass, talk, and dinner today.  In attendance was a family member of Audrey Toguchi, the woman that received the "second miracle" that led to St. Damien's canonization.
