Novena of St. Joseph

3/10 - 3/18


Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man. Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life. Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen.

Joseph most just - pray for us

Joseph most strong - pray for us

Joseph most faithful - pray for us



Lent Reflection

Feedback on Pastoral Plan Draft

Archdiocese of Seattle


Last March, the Archdiocese launched an online survey collecting nearly 8,000 responses from Catholics across the region. This Catholic survey was followed by listening sessions in October, centered on the preliminary elements of the mission statement, guiding principles, and a shared vision.  These sessions informed the development of the Pastoral Plan Draft. We invite all Catholics to review the draft below and share feedback in this survey.
