Mission Statement for the Bellingham Collaborative
The Mission of the Catholic Communities of St. Blaise and St. Brendan is to be a people dedicated to spreading the Good News of God's saving love to all, as we journey together in faith. As a sacramental people, united in the Eucharist, we seek to develop the full and active participation of all peoples and strengthen our relationship with Jesus Christ. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we strive to give witness to God's word and through the teachings of Jesus Christ actively follow the Gospel message by living the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

Theresa of the Child Jesus and the Feast of our Guardian
Angels. At each of the Masses we hope to have a
special blessing for our new surroundings. Please plan
to join us. AND...let's have a "parade" er, I mean a special
procession with as many of you who would like to
join in. How about a "MUMFESTIVAL"- please consider
bringing/donating a pot of mums to decorate the
church, the Altar area and the grounds. The more the
better! Bring your mum with you to Mass and we will
all carry one in procession to the Altar to be included in
our special blessing.

renovation. Thank you all for your wonderful support
and donations which will help to pay down our loan of
$140,000. And, thank you for considering a donation if
you haven't already done so. St. Blaise is a special place
for all of us so it is up to each of us to take on a portion
of the responsibility to "pay our fair share" to insure
our future as a community of believers. Every amount
helps, so please consider a special offering...AND
