Christ Our Hope Catholic Church, Seattle

We are centered on volunteerism, service, outreach and inclusion of all persons interested in furthering the mission of Jesus our Hope in downtown Seattle. Our mission is the social mission of the Catholic Church.

Christ Our Hope Church is located in the Catholic Housing Services' 14-story Josephinum at Second and Stewart, once the New Washington Hotel but now home to 240 formerly homeless and low-income residents. Mr. Stephen Lee, architect of the 1994 renovation of St. James Cathedral, was chosen to design the worship space. Respecting and blending the styles of the then-existing St. Joseph Chapel and of the former dining room of the hotel, Lee created a light-filled, contemporary environment for Catholic liturgy.

The beautifully renovated worship space officially became Christ Our Hope Catholic Church at the blessing and dedication by Archbishop Alexander J. Brunett on August 28, 2010.

Did you get a copy of the bulletin this weekend? You can find it online here:

We featured a message from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Page 3: “If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

What are you doing to keep moving forward?

Pope Francis reminds Donald Trump not to forget the poor

Pope Francis reminds us all: "We need to knock down the walls that divide us: try to boost well-being and make it more widespread but in order to achieve this, we need to knock down walls and build bridges that can lessen inequality and boost freedom and rights … What we want is a fight against inequality, this is the biggest evil that exists in the world today." VATICAN CITY (RNS) In his first comments published since the election, the pontiff does not judge the President-elect but notes dangers in the fears Trump has raised.
