Your Opinion Matters. What do you Think about the Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World? The Synod of Bishops will meet in Rome in October, 2015 to address this question. YOU are asked by the Office of the Synod of Bishops to provide your opinion by answering a series of 46 questions. You may answer all or some of the questions. Pope Francis has emphasized that the results of the survey are to form the basis for consultation and deliberations at the October meeting. This is a unique opportunity for you to voice your thoughts, experiences, hopes and dreams with regard to the Catholic Church as it relates to marriage and family. All responses are due by Monday, March 9th and will be sent to the United States Conference of Bishops and then to the Vatican. The hyperlink to the survey is
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta is a vibrant Roman Catholic faith community with many ministries that serve the Catholic community of Woodinville, Washington and beyond. It is an exciting time to be a parishioner of Blessed Teresa for many reasons, including the unique opportunity we have to build a parish that will serve many generations.
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVdP) strives to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need. We have two main focuses: (1) dedication to feeding, clothing, housing and supporting individuals and families in our community who have nowhere else to turn for help, and (2) providing meaningful opportunities for volunteers to get involved by serving their parish and neighbors in need with love and compassion. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents by becoming a member of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, we would love to have you! The more our ministry grows the more we are able to do and the more people we are able to reach that need our support, guidance and assistance.

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
Nourished by Scripture, Tradition, and the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, we proclaim the Risen Lord through prayer, faith formation, community and service. We open wide our doors to welcome new parishioners into our Catholic family. We are guided by the wisdom of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta who said, “Every home should feel the sunshine of God’s love radiating through it. May we each grow into the likeness of Christ through love for each other.”
