To receive Holy Communion when you are unable to attend services:
When an individual cannot attend a liturgical service because of illness or other incapacity, Holy Communion may be brought to the home or the hospital following regularly scheduled services. If you know of someone who would like to receive communion, contact Kevin Johnson or a member of the clergy. (Eucharistic visits were suspended in 2020, but have now resumed.)
To request prayers from the cathedral community:
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call the cathedral office (206.323.0300), or ask a member of the clergy. You may request prayers for healing for yourself or others, prayers for those who have died, prayers of thanksgiving following happy events, or prayers for whatever is on your heart. You may chose to have your prayer request printed in the cathedral's weekly prayer list and read aloud at Sunday services, or you may chose to keep your request more private.
Know someone suffering from need or illness?
The Saint Mark's Quilt Ministry provides quilts to wrap members of our community in love during times of need and illness, and to mark major life transitions. Recommendations for quilt gifts come from Saint Mark's clergy and the Pastoral Care Team. For more information contact Jo Ann Bailey or Carol Green.
