This page provides Partners in the Gospel information and resources for parishes in the Archdiocese of Seattle.

Parish toolkit

The Parish Toolkit was created to help parishes carry out the Partners in the Gospel effort locally. Use these materials below on your website, in your weekly bulletins and newsletters, at Mass and meetings, and on your social media channels.  Available in English and Spanish.


Partners Work Groups

Four workgroups, consisting of cross functional teams of clergy and lay leaders, are currently creating a set of tools, resources, and more to help guide parishes through this process.

Worship & Prayer


Community & Hospitality


Missionary Discipleship


Governance & Administration


Three phases

There will be three key phases that parishes will work through from 2024 to 2027, with the support of their parish liaison and the materials and tools developed by each work group. Each phase runs about a year.
