If you are a visitor to St. Joseph Catholic Church, we are happy to have you join us. All Masses at Saint Joseph are offered in the Tridentine Rite, in accordance with the liturgical books of 1962. Blue missalettes are available in the pews to help you follow along with the Latin Mass. The readings can be found in the bulletin available in the vestibule. Please visit "New to the Latin Mass" for some helpful tips.
RCIA is a specific catechetical program. The priests at St. Joseph offer individual convert instruction, instead of RCIA. In order to learn more about the Catholic Faith, please see the books below. For more information, please contact the parish office, 253-472-2489.
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. If interested or if you would like more information, please contact Matthew Ley (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).
If you are attending the 10:30 a.m. Mass, please bring doughnuts, cakes, cookies, vegetables, fruit, sandwiches, other finger food goodies, or drinks and join us for the coffee hour after Mass.

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 and shield 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.
