The Liturgy of the Hours is a wonderful way to build a more structured and meaningful prayer life, and a wonderful expression of faith, hope and charity.

Our Patron Saints

Welcome to St. Olaf Catholic Parish
Poulsbo, WA

St. Olaf Roman Catholic Parish (includes St. Peter Mission) is a diverse religious community with deep historic roots in North Kitsap.

Parish History

Our parish was originally founded in Suquamish at St. Peter Mission in 1863 with the mission church built in 1904. The mission is located next to the Native American cemetery where Chief Sealth, a baptized Catholic, is buried. In 1956, Father Max Murray purchased property in Poulsbo (now St. Olaf's Church), and in 1968 a new Parish was established. Saint Olaf, King of Norway, was chosen as our Parish patron saint to acknowledge the Scandinavian roots of Poulsbo.  St. Olaf's Church was dedicated by Archbishop Thomas A. Connolly, on June 29, 1969. At that time, St. Peter's became a mission of St. Olaf Parish. At present, our Parish serves over 1,100 Catholic families coming from Poulsbo, Kingston, North Silverdale, Hansville, Suquamish, Keyport, Port Gamble, Indianola, and Port Ludlow. Once again, as St. Olaf, our patron saint would say, "VELKOMEN"!
