Dear School Office Colleagues,

Happy New Year! Welcome back! We hope 2019 is off to a positive start! As we begin this new calendar year, we start getting ready for the next school year. With hiring season sneaking up on us for the coming months, you can start preparing by finding hiring forms on our new website. That link is also where you can find packets for pastors, principals, and supervisors for their Intent to Renew forms. Resources and evaluation forms for current employees can be found on as well.

CHANCERY PARTNER HIGHLIGHT: The Washington State Catholic Conference! The WSCC mission is rooted in the Catholic community’s belief in the dignity of the human person, our tradition of service to the most vulnerable of society, and our firm commitment to a just and peaceful world. THIS IS A GREAT LINK TO PLACE ON YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL WEBSITE TO INVITE AND ACTIVATE FAMILIES THROUGH FAITHFUL CITIZENSHIP!

  • Developing a public policy agenda and coordinating the advocacy efforts of the Catholic community in the state of Washington.
  • Engaging with public authorities, legislative bodies, and other civic organizations.
