Parish Background

Saint Katherine Orthodox Mission was established as a daughter of Seattle’s St. Spiridon Cathedral. Our mission is to minister to all people of the Eastside, both Orthodox Christians and those interested in the Orthodox faith, regardless of their ethnic or religious background. For this reason, all our services are in English, and we offer youth and adult education for Orthodox and those considering Orthodoxy.

Under Father Timothy Perry, services began in 1998 in the basement of Kirkland Congregational Church. A few years later, we relocated to a historic American Legion Hall down the street. This building was our home for a dozen years. During this time, the mission grew dramatically under the leadership of Father John Strickland. In 2012, after the arrival of Father Barnabas Powell, our growth reached the point where St. Katherine’s had to relocate to a larger facility – the “Kings Gate Fellowship,” a former Protestant church which we now lease. God willing, we shall one day acquire a permanent home.

The membership of St. Katherine’s presently consists mostly of converts to the Orthodox faith. We also have parishioners from Romanian and Slavic Orthodox backgrounds. Our parish family continues to grow, guided by the conviction that the Orthodox Church, founded by Jesus Christ, offers true hope for our salvation and the salvation of the world.
