Immaculate Conception Church
Seattle, WA
May 1, 2024

Immaculate Conception is a multicultural, dynamic, and welcoming Catholic community in Seattle, founded by the Jesuit Fathers in 1904. This welcoming led us to our first St Phoebe Day celebration Mass.

On September 10, 2024, young girls and women were featured in almost all of the liturgical ministries during the mass. Dalwyn Dean, a loyal parishioner and a member of our Health and Human Services Commission ministry, offered the reflection for our community.

Some parishioners had not heard of St. Phoebe and her diaconal ministry, while others were familiar and excited to share their knowledge of her ministry with others. Overall our community was open to this celebration, and some were extremely excited to learn more! Some parishioners asked when there would be more celebrations or sessions uplifting St. Phoebe and her ministry.

Our first St Phoebe Day celebration Mass was a great success. We are proud and excited to continue learning more together and to uplift the witness and ministry of St. Phoebe here at Immaculate Conception.

“We raised so much awareness from our event, of both the ongoing Synod and of St. Phoebe and her ministry. Together, we learned of the power of the intercession of St. Phoebe, and how significant her feast day can be to carry the message of women’s roles in the Church.”

“The most meaningful parts of our celebration together included a standing ovation following the witness reflection, the power and strength of the reflection itself, and the procession at the start of mass. In the procession, young women carried in and presented symbols of St. Phoebe including an icon, the commission of St. Paul, a deacon’s stole and a pitcher of water to symbolize our shared baptism.”

“Preaching on the Feast of St. Phoebe, and supporting and training other women to preach, was a joyful and invigorating experience. It is beautiful to see women claim the truth that they are called and gifted, and equally beautiful to see the People of God’s receptivity to women’s preaching, ministry, and leadership.”
