Congratulations to Mattawa, Quincy, Richland, White Salmon, and Cle Elum for meeting your ACA goal. We also have Wapato, Moses Lake, Holy Family (Yakima), Selah and Moxee between 90%-96% from meeting their goal.  Thank you everyone for all your hard work!

ACA Moment: The Annual Catholic Appeal funds many different programs and ministries throughout the Diocese of Yakima.  One such program is Magnificat. Isaac Prieto, Assistant of Hispanic Ministries for the Diocese, explains Magnificat as a “school of faith formation for anyone.” Fr. Jaime Chacon, pastor of Holy Redeemer Parish in Yakima, is the Vicar of Faith Education and Hispanic Affairs. He and Isaac are the coordinators for Magnificat here in the Diocese. Magnificat began over ten years ago when it was first offered in both English and Spanish. For several years now, the program has only been offered in Spanish, but as of this year, it is again available in English. The program is open to any adult or young adult within the Diocese and offers classes on many different topics such as the sacraments, liturgy, dogma, spirituality, Mary and the saints, and apologetics. Magnificat is a three-year program of 16 classes. Over 200 people throughout the Diocese this year are benefiting from the faith education that this program offers. Click here to learn more.

Enter Holy Week with Operation Rice Bowl

“As people of faith, we are trying to live out the golden rule of loving our neighbors as ourselves and the call of Matthew 25 to ‘feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and welcome the stranger.”

– Father Rafael Garcia, Pastor, Immaculate
Conception Church, Santa Fe, N.M.

“Como personas de fe, estamos tratando de vivir la regla de oro de amar a nuestro prójimo como a nosotros mismos  así como el llamado de Mateo 25 de ‘dar de comer al hambriento, vestir al que no tiene ropa, y recibir al extranjero’.”

– Padre Rafael García, párroco, Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepción, Santa Fe, N.M.

How the Beauty of the Cross Unveils the Mystery of Man, Life, Suffering, and Death

Why did Jesus have to die? What did His death do for us and how does it affect us today? We have heard the story and seen the movies, but do we really know what it means that the Son of God "saved" us by His death? In his talk, Peter Steele, a seminarian of the Yakima Diocese, will speak on these questions as he explains how the salvation of mankind results from the greatest act of horror and the greatest act of beauty colliding on the cross of Christ. Come and learn about the event that changed all existence for all time and see how it continues to bring meaning to our own life, sufferings and death today. The talk will take place April 16th at 7 PM in the main chapel of St. Joseph's Church, 212 N 4th St, Yakima, WA 98901. All are welcome to attend!
