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.

~First Sunday in Advent~:

wait, "Beware that your hearts do not become

always, and to be strong in the face of the
incessant commercialism of the season. And pray for
courage to introduce Jesus to others.
