EASTER 2021 – THE SEASON OF RISEN JOY

Congratulations to all Lent observants! Easter is here! Come celebrate!

We have completed the journey of 40 days. We have gone through the desert of temptations to the promised land of freedom. We are now entering the great season of Easter of the risen Lord. In the next 50 days, prior to the risen Lord’s ascension to heaven, we immerse in the infinite joy of resurrection on earth. We are now anointed bearers of the reign of God to the temporal world as the Lord sends his empowered disciples to the ends of the earth!

Great thanks to all of our liturgical ministers, Covid 19 safety team, maintenance, office volunteers, and other servant leaders of our beloved community. Many of our faithful have kept our church running well for the last 12 months. Since March 2020, we have walked a narrowed path to keep the vigil light of the sanctuary on, open the worshiping space safe and sound for the holy Mass, welcome people to memorial services to reconciliations and everything in between. A heart of gratitude to almighty God and people of good will.

We are now at the moment to advance further our Parish Mission and open wider the door for the gift of Eucharist and the meaning of life. Since national vaccination roll-out increases and people are better equipped with knowledge and skill to work and gather safely, we are in a healthier position to increase our activities. We are blessed to be able to help the wider community with 450 people vaccinated as our Archdiocese continues its pastoral and strategic planning to carry out the mission of Jesus Christ in Pacific Northwest through parishes and their consolidations.

Our Parish website has been redesigned and enhanced. Please go to mountvirgin.org to take a look for your faith schedule and community information. While you are there, do take the Mass Survey to tell us your plan of return for Mass, request a prayer, and make an online giving. Be assured we are called to walk by faith. Through the ups and downs of human history, we continue to witness God’s loving plan of salvation for all.

Happy Easter everyone! The Lord is risen!! Alleluia Alleluia!!!

Fr. Hung Nguyen, Pastor

LETTER FROM BISHOP MUEGGENBORG TO OLMV


ST. JOSEPH, A MAN WHO SET HIS HEART FREE BY LISTENING TO GOD'S CALLING

WELCOME BACK TO MASS

Archbishop Paul D. Etienne welcomes people back to Mass.

Governor Jay Inslee issued a new directive on May 27 permitting religious and faith-based organizations to hold services within strict requirements. The Washington State Catholic Conference bishops have provided parishes with guidance for safely and correctly reopening in accordance with the governor's direction.

Our Lady of Mount Virgin started publicly celebrating Mass on weekends. Mass looks, feels, and sounds different. Following these protocols, however, will allow us to be together in a safe and healthy way. We will all need to follow these guidelines carefully to continue to have public Mass.

Introducing Our Parish Safety Team

MANSAK DOUANGDALA, JOSEPH TSENG, THUONG PHAM, VIENTHI NGUYEN, PAUL HUYNH, TAK WAH WANG, MARIE BACH, MARISE CHAN.

My sincere thanks to your Parish Safety Team who has made our Parish reopening Masses possible. These are trained and dedicated members of our Parish who have come together to learn and establish procedures according the Archdiocese and WA State guidelines. They consistently carry out those safety procedures from the time of registration, to the day of set up and clean up for each Mass. They do not only offer their talent and labor; they also donate safety supplies with other donors as well. In this unusual time, we have received unusual gift – Our Parish Safety Team and their collaborating efforts.
