Located in beautiful Wenatchee, Washington, St. Joseph's is part of one of the most culturally diverse diocese in the United States, the Diocese of Yakima.  If you are in the Wenatchee area, we invite you to join us for Mass (see Mass Times) or stop by our perpetual Adoration Chapel for a few minutes of quiet prayer.  It is a joy for us to welcome new members to our parish.


OCTOBER is Respect Life Month,  and commends Catholics to “Christ Our Hope”

Although we must cherish, protect, and defend human life year-round, the Catholic Church in the United States sets aside each October as Respect Life Month.

This year’s theme, “Christ Our Hope: In Every Season of Life,” is particularly suited for our times. We know that Christ has conquered sin and death. Through our Christian hope in the Resurrection, we are given the grace to persevere in faith.

We support our Washington State’s bishops initiative of two prominent Catholic Pro-Life Initiatives to protect and promote Life in all its stages.  The PREPARES MINISTRY, which supports the unborn and mothers till the 5th year, and the consistent approach as defending life from the womb to the tomb as enlightened by the Cornerstone Catholic Conference: UNITED FOR LIFE & JUSTICE to be held October 18-19, 2019 at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center.  Please visit https://wacatholics.org/cornerstone/ for more info.

OCTUBRE es el Mes del Respecto de la Vida, y anima a los Católicos hacia “Cristo Nuestra Esperanza”.

“Aunque debemos de celebrar, proteger y defender la vid humana durante todo el año, la Iglesia Católica de los Estados Unidos separa cada mes de Octubre como un mes de Respeto a la vida.

El tema de este año, “Cristo Nuestra Esperanza: en Cada Estación de la Vida”, es particularmente adecuado para nuestros tiempos.  Nosotros sabemos que Cristo ha conquistado el pecado y la muerte.  Por medio de nuestra esperanza cristiana en la Resurrección, se nos ha dado la gracia de perseverar en la fe.

Nosotros apoyamos las iniciativas Pro-Vida de nuestros obispos del Estado de Washington para proteger y promover la Vida en todas sus etapas.  El Ministerio PREPARES, que apoya a los no nacidos y sus madres hasta el 5to año de nacimiento, y la manera consistente de defender la vida desde el vientre hasta la tumba, iluminada por LA CONFERENCIA CATOLICA CORNERSTONE: UNIDOS POR LA VIDA Y LA JUSTICIA que se llevara a cabo el 18-19 de octubre, 2010 en el Greater Tacoma Convention Center.  Visite https://wacatholics.org/cornerstone/ for more info.
