Meet our priests

The role of the priest is to provide sacraments, preach and teach the word of God and apply it to people's day-to-day lives. They provide pastoral counseling to people in times of need, and are shepherds of God's people. Of course, priests are also called, like all of us, to be disciples and follow Jesus.

To be a priest in the Archdiocese of Seattle is a great mission. There are opportunities to find new ways not only to serve those who are Catholic but to also serve the needs of the larger community.
