Catechism Classes

As announced...


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 more information, please contact Matthew Ley (please be sure to write “Choir” in the subject line). Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).

Little Flowers

The Little Flowers Girls' Club is for girls ages 6 and up. We meet on First Saturdays after Mass and Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Please contact Christine for additional information.

St. Joseph Men's Group

The Men's Group meets once a month. Speak with Ron Whelan for more information. All men of the parish are welcome and encouraged to attend.

St. Joseph’s Pro-Life Group

St. Joseph's pro-life group prays outside the Tacoma Planned Parenthood facility every Thursday morning after 8:00 a.m. Mass. If you are unable to join us in sidewalk prayer, please consider uniting your prayers with ours during this time.

"Happy the priest who loves his pastor's lot and lives wholly in it, fulfilling day by day the slight and despised acts of charity to all who need his care, and laying up in heaven unconsciously the gold dust of a humble life, looking only for his eternal reward."
