After consultation with staff and the TPFB Board, I am writing to announce that the TPFB will temporarily suspend operations immediately. Lilia Ortiz, our TPFB director, and her husband Jose were notified yesterday that someone close to them tested positive for COVID-19. Though they have experienced no symptoms and may not be infected, they have been asked to self-quarantine for 14 days. Both Lilia and Jose were present last Friday and Saturday to pack and distribute food. Volunteers, staff, and clients are being notified of the possible exposure. Important information on COVID-19 from the Washington State Department of Health is available at: https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/NovelCoronavirusOutbreak2020/FactSheet

We will continue to monitor this situation and hope to re-open in coming weeks. Please join me in praying for Jose and Lilia and all who are impacted by this pandemic.

In Christ,

Prayer for Spiritual Communion:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most holy Eucharist. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of Seattle

Holy Mary, we come before you as spiritual children in great need, seeking your intercession, and asking that your mantle of love surround us to console,
protect and lead us to your son Jesus.

We entrust all of God’s family,
especially the church in Western Washington, into your immaculate hands.
With your son Jesus’ gentle power you can undo any knot in our church,
and in the lives of believers who entrust themselves to your care.

Today I especially entrust to you [mention request here/an end to the coronavirus and help for all who have been afflicted by it] and I ask that – through your intercession, and that of St. James, our guardian angels, and the faithful in our archdiocese – we may be free from every spiritual and temporal ill, and be safely led to encounter your son’s most merciful, sacred heart.

Our Lady of Seattle, Undoer of Knots, pray for us!
