For the last 25 years, St. Benedict Catholic School has teamed with Mr. Sean Richarz, the Band teacher at Bishop Blanchet High School, to provide our students in grades 5-8 with an opportunity to participate in the school’s Band program.
The St. Benedict Catholic School Band is for beginning and experienced player and meets twice a week during the school year.
Parents are asked to contact the office for additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Students in grades 3 – 8 are invited to join the Sanctus Liturgical Choir. This choir meets after school once a week throughout the school year. This rehearsal time is used to prepare the choir to lead the school in liturgical songs twice a month during school Masses.
More information can be obtained from the Choir director, Ms. Ann Radermacher at email@example.com
Each year St. Benedict Catholic School students have the opportunity to assist the school and parish by acting as altar servers during school and parish Masses. Altar servers carry the processional cross, hold the Roman Missal for the priest celebrant, help prepare the altar for the Liturgy of the Eucharist, assist the priest when he receives the gifts during the offertory, wash the hands of the priest, and assist the priest celebrant as necessary during Mass. This role is open to all Catholic students, regardless of their parish affiliation, who are enrolled in 5th – 8th grade.
If you are interested in being an altar server or have any questions about this ministry, please email Joe Fellores at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Parish Office.
N Seattle Catholic Youth is a youth ministry partnership between seven parishes in the North Seattle area, including St. Benedict Parish.

Each spring students in our 5th – 8th grade are invited to audition for the Spring Musical. Participation in the musical is a decades old rite of passage for the older students at St. Benedict. All students are welcome to participate as an actor, member of the chorus, or part of the stage crew. Auditions take place each January.
The annual Talent Show is an opportunity for all students (PS-8) to share their special talents with the school students and other special guests. This event takes place at the end of January during Catholic School Week.
