Father Woodland leaving June 30, 2024

Welcome Father Strange and Fr. Bray

DATE: 4/10/24

If you went to Mass this weekend, I am sure you heard the news that Father Woodland is leaving the St. Philomena Parish and School communities effective June 30, 2024. This is all part of the Partners in the Gospel plan. Father Woodland will be the associate pastor at Sacred Heart in Enumclaw, St. Barbara in Black Diamond and St. Aloysius in Buckley. Our new pastor will be Father Todd Strange who is currently the pastor at St. Joseph Parish in Issaquah. Our associate pastor will be Father Ben Bray, who is the priest administrator at Holy Trinity in Bremerton. We welcome both Fr. Strange and Fr. Bray to St. Philomena School as of July 1, 2024. We are working on plans to say goodbye to Father Woodland and will keep you informed of these plans.
