With deep sadness, we inform you of the passing of the Reverend Dr. Bill Cate, long-time President-Director of the Church Council of Greater Seattle (1970 - 1990). Our work since 1990 builds on his rich and extraordinary legacy. His ecumenical passion and leadership helped to make the Seattle region one of the great centers of ecumenical life and faith-inspired social justice in the nation in the 1970s and 1980s. Our prayers and condolences go out to Bill's wife, Jan, and to their extended family. We will miss him tremendously.

Read about Dr. Cate's legacy here. There will be a memorial service to celebrate his life on Sunday, January 31, at 2 p.m. at Bellevue First United Methodist Church, 1934 108th Ave. NE, Bellevue.
