Mass Time Changes

Beginning this month in August, we have slightly changed our Mass Schedule: 

Why did our previous Mass schedule have such odd times anyway?
8:15, 5:15…what’s with the 15 min past the hour? We’re not exactly sure when this change was made, but we do know that at one point in time, Jesuit priests from Seattle would come to celebrate the Mass at Star of the Sea. And… the ferry schedule didn’t make it easy for them to arrive on time, causing Mass to start later. Given that extra 15 minutes to get from the ferry terminal to the church, made all the difference. It is most likely the Mass times were changed to accommodate those coming from the ferry. Since then, we have had the pleasure of having our own parish priests to celebrate all of the weekend Masses and have never changed the schedule…until now!
