Founded in 1911 as a Slovakian parish, Saint Joseph is a historical Catholic church in Tacoma, WA, served by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP). The FSSP is a society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right instituted by Pope St. John Paul II in 1988. All Masses and Sacraments are performed in the Latin Usus Antiquior of the Roman Rite, in accordance with the liturgical books of 1962, as expressed in the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. We are thankful to the long-time parishioners of Saint Joseph for graciously opening their doors to the South Sound Latin Mass community and to Archbishop Sartain for making it possible. May we grow to be a vibrant parish, bringing greater glory to God.
