St. Joseph Novena


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



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

Special Message from Archbishop Etienne



Archbishop Etienne has a special video message on the anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know not only the cost and the suffering that's been a part of this past year, but hopefully how we've been able to unite that to the cross of Jesus, and how we've been able to draw from the life of the risen Jesus as our real sustenance and as our real source of hope and strength," the archbishop said.
"As we continue with our own struggles, let's bring them to the Lord who cares, who is with us, who accompanies us. Let's ask him for the grace and the courage to accompany one another now in these days ahead, as we not only rebuild our faith communities and society, as disciples of the Lord, we go forth to build his kingdom."


Archdiocese of Seattle Statement
on COVID-19 Vaccines

In accordance with the instruction of the Holy See and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the use of all current COVID-19 vaccines during this pandemic is morally acceptable. It is not only important for one’s personal health, but it is also our responsibility to care for the common good of the broader community, and getting a vaccine is one way to do so. Whenever you are allowed to get the vaccine, please do so knowing that it is morally acceptable to receive whichever vaccine is being offered.

Vatican Resources
The Holy See recently published a resource kit to assist you with COVID-19 vaccine communication. The kit includes materials about the COVID-19 vaccine for varied audiences, relevant quotes from Pope Francis and episcopal conferences, links to useful information, and short messages for websites, parish bulletins, or other media. Please see the toolkit here.

We’re All in Phase 2 
All parishes are in Phase 2. This means that all parishes are at 25% capacity, but are not limited at 200 people. Also important to note is that if your parish has overflow space, it is no longer necessary to require that space to have its own restroom access. One set of restrooms is adequate to serve the church and other overflow space, provided 6 feet of distancing is maintained between each person. Here is a link to most recent faith-based guidance

Updated Liturgy Q&A
As the pandemic continues to unfold, the guidance on public worship, both from the state of Washington and from the Archdiocese of Seattle, has changed with our growing understanding about how COVID-19 is spread. This document is intended to provide an overview of current guidance and quick answers to the most frequently asked questions from parishes about celebrating the liturgy during the pandemic.
