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.

A Special Thank You:
Boy Scout Troop 100 surprised
Fr. Al last week with a $500.00 donation for the maintenance
fund! We want to thank EVERYONE who has
donated to the fund, to date we have raised
$86,278.20. If you have not donated to the fund we ask
that you prayerfully consider making a donation. The
new handicap ramp will soon be poured and the new
church doors project will begin, bringing the doors and
exits up to code. We have an engineering firm beginning
the design of the new fire alarm system that will
go out to bid shortly. We thank you for your patience
during the construction. If you have any questions
about the work, please speak to Fr. Al, Tom Lyden, Jim
Nieva or Paula.
How do I talk to friends about faith when when we disgaree?
Proverbs 221:17 tell us, "Iron is sharpened by iron; one person sharpens another." Don't shy away from meaningful conversations regarding faith - even when disagreements are bound to happen. The attitdude we entertain during these interactions have more of an impact than the words we speak. Remember - Joy, Gentleness, Love.
