St. Hilda St. Patrick is a neighborhood church and our church community includes many who live and work near here. We understand ourselves to be the hands, feet, heart and compassion of Jesus Christ for the world, and we are a place where everybody is somebody. Living our faith in our neighborhoods and the world around us is an important part of our faith.

As an Episcopal church, we are part of the Diocese of Olympia and the larger Episcopal Church USA, which is tied to the Church of England. Our worship is based on the Book of Common Prayer and we are a liturgical church, meaning our prayers and worship take a regular pattern from week to week. We are mightily inspired by the Holy Spirit and rejoice in God’s Love for all people and creation. We welcome all who want to learn about the faith of God, grow in their spirituality, and feed their soul with the teaching of Jesus Christ.

Keeping a Holy Silence

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Lent invites us to keep the days between Ash Wednesday (March 1) and the Great Vigil of Easter (April 15) by self-examination, repentance, prayer and fasting; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word. During these 40 days of Lent (Sundays are not counted among the 40 days), we will practice keeping a holy silence. Our fast will be from the overabundance of noise that pushes on our senses. Our worship space will be a sanctuary of silence before worship, and there will be meditations and prayers to use as you prepare for worship; to read after receiving communion; and to take with you to ponder throughout the week.

Silence is the space between — the space between the notes, the moments between the words, the muting of the cacophony that presses in on our lives. Silence helps define the shape of our lives. Silence can be a time to listen for God and to see better. Silence is not necessarily about seeking answers, but about allowing yourself the space to simply be.

Please join us in our Lenten practices that your heart and soul may be prepared to great our risen Lord!
