St. Hilda St. Patrick Now Seeking Our Next Vicar

It is with great pleasure that we announce that our church Profile has been enthusiastically approved by Bishop Greg Rickel.

I invite each of you to open it and read it. It is an amazing portrait of our church family. It represents months of hard work and dedication by our Profile Committee – and great participation by the members of St. Hilda St. Patrick in both small groups and in the CAT survey.

The Search Committee is now working to apply the Profile to interested clergy members forwarded by the Diocese. At the end of the process, they will report a nominee for consideration by the Bishop’s Committee (congregation governing council).

Now, just as much as ever, your prayers for the Episcopal Church of St. Hilda St. Patrick are vital.

In Christ,
Michael Rader
your Senior Warden

Welcome, Rev. Fitzgibbons

The Rev. Sabeth Fitzgibbons is happy to be our interim vicar, spiritual leader, and shepherd as we continue on our journey to find our new vicar over the next several months.

Sabeth began as an English major at Seattle University.  She is wonderful at weaving engaging stories. She will get us to drop our guards and allow ourselves to walk with her through the scriptures.  We look forward to hearing her sermons, and to her leading us in our worship and prayers to our Lord.

Sabeth most recently served for 22 months as Interim Rector at Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Mercer Island.  She comes with a strong love of liturgy, the skills to guide us in building our community, and leadership as we look forward with hope and faith into the future that God has in mind for us.
