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.

New look at St.Blaise:
Thank you to parishioner Mike Carey for the beautiful new look of the main windows of the church. The windows are covered with a special graphic film that gives the look of stained glass.
Mike's employer (ICL Imaging) provided the materials at their cost of goods. Mike and his wife, Annie, donated their labor to install it.
The new covering will protect the altar and congregation from the glare of the new, clear glass insulated windows, while at the same time provide a beautiful "glow" within our worship space.
Thank you to all involved.
