Faith Justice

A Community of Compassionate Care

For more than a hundred years, St. Joseph Parish has served the greater community of Seattle in a myriad of ways. Beginning with our own parish and growing out of the Gospel call to love God and to love neighbor, we have sought right relationship in companionship with each other.

Whether through a parish-sponsored ministry or through volunteer or professional engagement in a local non-profit or service agency, the women and men of our community have taken responsibility to preach the Good News through direct service in mutuality and humility.

Our parish Vision Statement calls us to be persons for others and so to support faith initiatives beyond the walls of the Church, to become a community on mission, seeking the common good through the building of right relationship with God, with others, and with creation.

Faith Justice Commission

The Faith Justice Commission forms and supports a spiritually and intellectually active community at St. Joseph by:

  • sharing information and promoting opportunities for parishioners to engage in direct service with those in need,
  • assisting in those events or programs that build greater companionship with the poor or marginalized, and
  • developing collaborative avenues of advocacy to transform structures of poverty and displacement.
