We will be welcoming Fr. Bill McKee as our new pastor on July 1st. He is currently the pastor of St. Vincent de Paul parish in Federal Way. He grew up in Longview, WA and was eight years behind me in the seminary. Right now he is on sabbatical in Tucson, AZ and will be returning to the Northwest at the end of May. He is immersing himself in Spanish and also the Strengthfinders program. He is a quiet man, whose number one strength is Deliberative. He likes to think things through. He is attracted to our parish because of our emphasis on social outreach and advocacy. He lives in Federal Way and will commute here for the time being. I can’t think of a better pastor for our parish than Fr. Bill. Please pray for him.
