Is it safe to be around others and attend Sparks of Faith at St. Mary Anacortes while Washington is still under the phased re-opening plan because of the COVID-19 pandemic?

Sparks of Faith has been carefully planned to ensure your health and safety. St. Mary Anacortes is cooperating with civil authorities to ensure the health and safety of all during this pandemic. All volunteers have had the mandated Archdiocese of Seattle COVID-19 Safety Training, and we will be professionally sanitizing our buildings between presentations/events. Chairs will be spaced 6 feet apart. All attendees and anyone not on stage presenting content will be wearing face masks. Hand sanitizer will be available and used. St. Mary Anacortes has comprehensive COVID-19 safety protocols. Download this document for details.

Can I watch the event after July 11, 2020?

Yes! A video of Sparks of Faith will be up on our website and Facebook for 30 days only, due to copyright restrictions.

Can you tell me more about the DVD?

The Sparks of Faith event DVD will showcase the following:

  1. Dr. Healy’s theme talk: The Light Shines and is Not Overcome
