St. Joseph Catholic Church, Issaquah 5-year plan.


Prayer: With a foundation that is our communal worship offered to God in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we seek to ever-develop the spiritual life of our community and its individuals through a life rooted in prayer, especially in association with the Sacraments.

Teaching: We foster life-long learning—in our parish school and in our faith formation programs for all ages, and in preaching—which seeks to form the mind and heart in accord with the Church that Jesus entrusted to his disciples and their successors, utilizing Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and guidance from the living Magisterium.

Service: In response to Jesus’ call to serve the least of his brothers and sisters (Matthew 25), we reach out in his name to those in need—the hungry, the poor, the sorrowful, those in the margins—here and abroad (The Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy).

Community: Inspired by the words of St. Paul (1 Corinthians 12), we employ the diverse range of gifts given to us for the work set before this parish and its Mission. We seek to build a loving community of faith, that makes Jesus known to the larger community around us.
