News from the Catholic Church in Western Washington and beyond.
Launched in 2013, both Northwest Catholic and NWCatholic.org evolved out of the former Catholic Northwest Progress newspaper, which published its last issue on June 27, 2013.
Northwest Catholic's Facebook Policy:
The purpose of this page is to provide news about the Catholic Church in Western Washington and create an online gathering space for Catholics throughout the region and beyond.
We appreciate healthy, constructive debate and discussion; that means we ask that comments be kept civil in tone and that they exhibit Christian charity. We reserve the right to remove comments.
Comments will not be removed simply because they express opinions in disagreement with the Archdiocese of Seattle. However, comments that may be deleted include those that contain:
- Vulgar language
- Personal attacks/inflammatory remarks against a person or group/libel
- Content/comments off topic
- Links to sites that contain offensive material or attack a person
- Promotion of services, products, political organizations/agendas
- Information that is factually incorrect
We will remove posters from the page after one warning if posters violate any of these policies.

Thanks to Maureen Place, who shared this photo of her baptismal gown with us (inspired by this story: nwcatholic.org/clothingtraditions).
Maureen says she wore the gown in October 1946 in Detroit. Her two children wore it for their baptisms in 1969 and 1972. And six of her seven grandchildren were also baptized in it, all at St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Yacolt, Washington (Sacred Heart Parish).
