Saint Barbara Parish

Our Parish

Our Parish is about people: their lives, their faith, their stories, their relationships, their gifts, and their involvement. We celebrate what God has done for us and are open to where the Spirit calls us to be in the future. We are humbled and grateful for people brought into our lives through the gift that is St. Barbara Church.

Since the founding of the parish a little over a century ago, St. Barbara Church has adapted as times, occupations, and situations have changed. As Covington and Maple Valley have expanded toward Black Diamond, this once small rural town experiences gradual transformation. Founded by immigrants, we stand ready to welcome the faith, gifts, and enriching perspectives of an increasingly diverse community.

We rejoice in the many family members, guests and visitors who venture our way and look forward each year to the skiers, hikers and outdoor folks who drop by for Mass on their way to the slopes and mountains.
