Welcome to Tacoma Regional Parishes

From now on you are welcome to come to Mass at St. Ann and St. John of the Woods Parises with No Need of Registration. Thank You









Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021

St. Ann: English Mass at 8AM & 5PM, Vietnamese Mass at 7PM

St. John of the Woods: English Mass at 9:30AM & 7PM

In line with the Corona Virus requirements, ashes will be place on the top of the head, not the forehead as in the past, as a sign of repentance. Ashes will be distributed at Mass.


Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.  Those between ages18 and until reaching age 59 are expected to fast.  When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.    

Abstinence (abstaining from meat) is required for those age 14 and older. 

Fridays during Lent are days of abstinence (no meat) for those 14 and older (no meat is eaten on Lenten Fridays).  It is important to understand that the Church excuses certain people from these penances for health reasons. Examples include those who are frail, pregnant, have health issue, or are manual laborers. If fasting or abstinence cause health problems, you are excuse.

Stations of the Cross

On Fridays in Lent we will pray the Stations of the Cross
St. John of the Woods: after the 9:30  Friday morning Mass, and again in the evening at 7:00 pm.
St. Ann: 3PM in English on Fridays & 3:30PM in Vietnamese on Sundays

We will rebroadcast the Friday evening Stations on the parish facebook and website. You are invited to pray with the community while watching. If convenient and safe, light a candle during the rebroadcast of the Stations to help focus your prayers. 

Monday Holy Hour at St. John of the Woods Parish

On Monday evenings in Lent, you are invited to the 7:00pm to 8:00pm Holy Hour. This time of silent prayer will be live streamed on the Parish Facebook & Website. If praying at home, you may want to light a candle to help focus your prayers. Also there will be opportunity for confession during the Monday evening Holy Hour 7:00 to 8:00PM.


St. John of the Woods: On Wednesdays after the 9:30 morning Mass, there is Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from after Mass until noon.
