Seattle Archbishop Alex J. Brunett celebrated a Mass and missioning ceremony in the chapel at Providence Mount St. Vincent in West Seattle on Oct. 9 for the new sponsors of Providence Health and Services. The new sponsors will form Providence Ministries, a church corporation entrusted with the responsibility for ministries of the church, on Jan. 1.

The Sisters of Providence requested and received Vatican approval of the change to an alternative method of sponsorship for the Catholic health care, education and social service ministries in Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington that are part of PH&S.
