Called to Serve as Christ Campaign

The Archdiocese of Seattle is kicking off a landmark archdiocesan-wide campaign titled Called to Serve as Christ Campaign for our priests, sisters and family of faith. This important initiative has a goal of $100 million and will help meet the growing needs throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle. Each parish is asked to do its part in leading the campaign to success. Please prayerfully consider a three-year pledge to the campaign. Our parish goal is $136,747.00. Our parish, through prayer, hard work and generosity will do it’s part to accomplish this goal. St. Joseph’s will receive 15% of all funds raised up to our goal for our own local needs. Also, 85% of any funds raised beyond our goal will be returned to our parish as well. Additionally 27.5% of our goal will be contributed to FSSP for their retirement and pension. You will be hearing more about this effort in the coming weeks and months. Pray that the Called to Serve as Christ Campaign may be successful. Donate today! Please be sure to specify "St. Joseph, Tacoma" as your parish.

Choir Members Wanted

Sacred music has a very important place in the worship of the Church. Having beautiful sacred music can only be achieved through much dedication on the part of the choir. New members are always welcome. Men are particularly needed at this time. If interested or if you would like some more information, please contact (please be sure to write “Choir” in the subject line). Rehearsals are currently on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).

Please remember to keep Fr. Stinson, FSSP and Fr. Insco, FSSP in your daily prayers.


A Prayer for Priests

O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world's contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and their everlasting crown hereafter. O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many holy priests. Amen.
