STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE CAMPAIGN
During this coming week as we focus on Stewardship of Treasure, please  reflect on how we are called to continue to sustain our parish church and its ministries by returning to the Lord a proper portion of what He has given us.  By returning your pledge card, you are helping our parish plan for the coming year. If you are not able to pledge at this time, please keep our community in your prayers and write “Prayers” on your pledge card. Stay tuned for next week’s witness presentation!

SEATTLE ARCHDIOCESE'S NEW CATECHETICAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Formerly known as the Catechist Certification Program, the Seattle Archdiocese’s newly reformed program offers two types of certificates—Adult Faith Formation or Catechist. All catechists and instructors of faith formation and sacramental programs are expected by the Archdiocese to become certified. This new program enables individuals to achieve this closer to home and in a much quicker timeframe. However, any adult wishing to grow more knowledgeable in his or her Catholic faith is also encouraged to join the group.
The program consists of six, three-hour classes, and at-home learning via the Augustine Institute’s Symbolon series, as well as journaling. Classes will be held on Monday nights from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at St. Joseph in Ferndale’s Parish Office (Disciples Den). Classes begin in 2018 on Dec. 10, then continue in 2019 on  Jan. 14, Feb. 11, March 11, April 8, and May 11. The cost is $75. Register at
