With the winter solstice, the temperatures are going to be dropping below freezing in the early mornings. Often we have ice and frost that builds up in the parking lot that does not melt in time for the 9 am Mass, which makes it very unsafe for most of us. Without a dedicated ministry, de-icing the parking lot has happened haphazardly at best. Are there a few strong local members/families willing to be on a winter rotation to check the weather on Sunday mornings, and, if it is icy, come spread the de-icer on our walkways and parking lot at 8 am? This will be a special ministry team that will only operate through mid-March. Please contact Kathy Wickward at 253-630-0701 x103 (office phone) if you can minister to St. John the Baptist in this way.

I would like to share a big shout out of thanks to all who have been instrumental in bringing our daily and weekend liturgies to life these past few months. These include our point persons, sacristans, Eucharistic ministers, altar servers, greeters, and lectors. Because of Covid-19, many of our liturgical ministers have served weekly, and for this I am deeply grateful. I am also thankful for our communications team who has provided the support necessary for live-streaming and recording our weekend liturgies. And special thanks for our liturgist, Laurie Moloney, and our music director, Luis Diaz de Leon, as well as David Aldous, our steward of facilities who have been here every week to see to it that everything is ready to go. We will continue with masses outside through September. And men, you can wear hats.
