   Bishops Endorse Gun Safet Protection  
 
Highlighting the sacredness of all human life, the Catholic Bishops of Washington State issued a statement October 18 endorsing Initiative 1639 on gun violence prevention. The Bishops acknowledged the importance of individual liberties such as gun ownership, while pointing out that the U.S. Catholic Church has long supported reasonable measures to ensure a higher level of public safety. Initiative 1639 would strengthen gun sale background checks, require safety training, extend waiting periods for semi-automatic weapons, and establish safe-storage conditions for gun owners. Additionally, I-1639 would prohibit the sale of assault rifles to people under the age of 21.
 
"Violent tragedies have become far too frequent in our communities and very powerful weapons are often too accessible," the Bishops of Seattle, Yakima, and Spokane said in a joint statement.
 

   Cardinal Dolan Highlights Respect Life Month
 
 

Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, Archbishop of New York and Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, issued a statement for Respect Life Month. "We are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. ... Drawing upon the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego, this [year's] theme is briefly unpacked in a short reflection." Click here to read this year's reflection.
 

   Public Charge Proposal Could Harm Families  
 

Last week, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a proposed regulatory change that would negatively impact legal immigrants.  As currently written, the proposed rule would drastically revise the existing standards for making a "public charge" determination, one of the ways that the federal government determines whether to admit an individual into the U.S. or allow an immigrant currently living lawfully in the country to become a permanent resident.  Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle, pointed out that, "The proposed rule could prevent families right here in Washington from receiving vital nutrition, health, and housing assistance." Here is how you can respond:
  1. Learn - Educate yourself and others by reading this helpful background information prepared by USCCB and Catholic Charities USA.
  2. Submit Comments - This is an important way to exercise good citizenship. You can submit comments here. The deadline for submitting comments is December 10, 2018.

  WSCC Submits Comments on Abortion Mandate
 
  The Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC) has proposed regulations to implement the abortion insurance mandate legislation passed by the Legislature and signed into law earlier this year. The WSCC submitted comments encouraging the Insurance Commissioner to include specific conscience protection language into the final rule. As a matter of religious freedom, the request is driven by our concern for religious employers and others being at legal risk simply for following their religious or moral beliefs and exercising the fundamental right of conscience constitutionally guaranteed to all Americans.

The Catholic Bishops of Washington State applauded the October 11, 2018 decision by the state Supreme Court to abolish the death penalty in Washington. The Bishops have long been on record as opposing capital punishment.

“We applaud the unanimous state Supreme Court decision issued today finding the death penalty unconstitutional,” said Archbishop J. Peter Sartain of Seattle. “The Catholic Church’s consistent belief is that every human life is sacred from conception until natural death – it is this principle that has energized our efforts for decades to abolish the death penalty.”

Earlier this year, Washington’s Catholic Bishops provided testimony in support of legislation to repeal the death penalty citing the country’s imperfect record in imposing the death penalty, the potential for racial biases and specific instances where innocent people have been executed for crimes they did not commit. Since 1973, 161 people sentenced to death have been exonerated. Today’s decision by the Supreme Court indicates a move towards greater justice and greater respect for life at all stages.

The Catholic Bishops of Washington State are Archbishop J. Peter Sartain and Auxiliary Bishops Eusebio Elizondo and Daniel Mueggenborg of Seattle, Bishop Thomas Daly of Spokane, and Bishop Joseph Tyson of Yakima.

The WSCC is the public policy voice of the Catholic Bishops of Washington.

 

 

 

The Pope asks us to pray a Rosary daily that the Virgin Mary protect the Church in these times of crisis, and to pray to St. Michael the Archangel that he defend the Church from the attacks of the devil.

Pope Francis – October 2018


 

 

 

El Papa nos pide rezar un Rosario diario para que la Virgen María proteja a la Iglesia en estos tiempos de crisis, y rezar al Arcángel San Miguel para que la defienda de los ataques del diablo.

Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed of missionary enthusiasm and let us pray that consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice.

Pope Francis – October 2018

Religious, with their prayer, poverty, and patience, are essential to the Church’s mission.
More than ever, with the challenges of today’s world, we need their complete dedication to proclaiming the Gospel.
Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed of missionary enthusiasm and let us pray that consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice.


 

 

 

No nos dejemos robar el entusiasmo misionero y recemos para que los consagrados y las consagradas despierten su fervor misionero y estén presentes entre los pobres, los marginados y con los que no tienen voz.

Papa Francisco – Octubre 2018

Los consagrados con su oración, pobreza y paciencia son esenciales para la misión de la Iglesia.
Más que nunca, con los desafíos del mundo de hoy, necesitamos su entrega total al anuncio del Evangelio.
No nos dejemos robar el entusiasmo misionero y recemos para que los consagrados y las consagradas despierten su fervor misionero y estén presentes entre los pobres, los marginados y con los que no tienen voz.


 

 
DIOCESE OF YAKIMA YOUTH CONVENTION
"FACE OR FICTION" 
FAKE NEWS VS. THE GOOD NEWS
 
Can you distinguish the difference between fake news and the Good News? He said, she said. #MeToo, False accusations. Alternative news. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid. Live stream videos. What’s trending? Snap streaks. Do it for the ‘Gram!
 
With all the sound bytes and media buzz flooding our screens and minds, how are we supposed to know what’s real and what’s fake? And more importantly, who has time to figure out what we’re supposed to believe and what we’re supposed to dismiss? When we’re bombarded with tons of information at our fingertips, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Join us at the 2018 Diocese of Yakima Youth Convention where you’ll learn how to filter all that information through the truth that comes only from the Cross. Leave all of your distractions behind and spend time building up your relationship with Christ with other young Catholics from all over the Diocese of Yakima. Through engaging talks, live music and most importantly, celebration of the sacraments, you’ll come to a deeper appreciation for Jesus Christ, who is THE way, THE truth and THE life.
 
This year’s DYC will take place at St. Joseph – Sunnyside, (907 South 6th Street, Sunnyside, WA 98944 ) beginning on November 2nd at 7PM and concluding on Sunday the 4th at noon. Daily Mass is planned into the schedule.
 
The conference cost is:
$40/ youth, chaperone, group leaders for early registration before October 12th
$45/ youth, chaperone, group leaders for regular registration from October 13th – October 19th
$50/ youth, chaperone, group leaders for late registration October 20th – November 2nd
 
The cost includes participation in the conference, t-shirt, lunch and dinner on Saturday and lodging. You may adjust these fees if you want to account for other costs (breakfast/snacks for your group throughout the weekend, travel costs, other supplies, etc.) for your youth group. An invoice will be sent to your parish after the event.
 
If you have any questions about the conference, please contact Melissa Montenegro at 509.940.1012 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We hope to see you there! In God’s Love, Yakima Diocese Youth Ministers
 

DIÓCESIS DE LA CONVENCIÓN JUVENIL YAKIMA
"CARA O FICCIÓN"
FALSAS NOTICIAS VS. LAS BUENAS NOTICIAS

 

¿Puedes distinguir entre noticias falsas y reales?
Él dijo, ella dijo, falsas acusaciones, Noticias alternativas. No tomes Kool Aid. Videos en vivo. Que está haciendo todo el mundo. El snapchat y el “ponlo en el Instagram!”

 

Con todos los bytes de sonido y el zumbido de los medios inundando nuestras pantallas y mentes, ¿cómo vamos a saber que es verdadero y que es falso? Y lo más importante, es ¿quién tiene el tiempo para averiguar lo que debemos creer y a lo que no le deberemos dar importancia? Estamos bombardeados con todo esto y lo tenemos todo esto en la punta de los dedos. Es muy fácil que nos siéntanos abrumados. Acompáñanos este ano a la CONVENCIÓN DIOCESANA DE JOVENES 2018 donde aprenderás como filtrar toda esa información a través de la única verdad que viene de LA CRUZ. Deja todas tus distracciones y ven a construir una relación con Cristo junto a jóvenes de nuestra Diócesis.Tendremos pláticas, música en vivo y lo más importante, celebraremos los Sacramentos. Podrás conocer más profundamente a Nuestro Señor Jesucristo porque Él es EL CAMINO, LA VERDAD Y LA VIDA.

 

Este año DYC tendrá lugar en la Parroquia de la San Jose-Sunnyside, (907 South 6th Street, Sunnyside, WA 98944) a partir del 2 de No-viembre a las 7:00 PM. Y concluyendo al medio día el domingo 4 de Noviembre. Misa diaria está prevista en el calendario. El costo de la con-ferencia es:


$ 40/Jóvenes, chaperón, líderes de grupo para la inscripción antes del 12 de octubre.
$ 45 / jóvenes, chaperón, líderes de grupos para la inscripción regular de 13 octubre-19 octubre
$ 50 / jóvenes, chaperón, líderes de grupos para la inscripción tardía 20 octubre hasta 2 noviembre.

 

El costo incluye la participación en la conferencia, la camiseta, el almuerzo y la cena del sábado y el alojamiento. Puede ajustar estas tarifas si quieres dar cuenta de otros gastos (desayuno / aperitivos para su grupo durante todo el fin de semana, el kilometraje, otros suministros, etc.) para el grupo de jóvenes.

Friends on Presidents Day February 18th 2019 we are having ReClaim — a ministry that provides on line support for pornography struggles. We will also have Dr Fernando Ortiz who will address brain chemistry and addiction cycles. This upcoming seminar on October 16th 2018 and October 23, 2018 might be a good preparation as well as an alternative for those away on Presidents’ Day. Many prayers for these ministry initiatives.

Friends:

As noted in a recent message from Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the sexual abuse scandal in the Church has been and continues to be a “moral catastrophe.” It summarizes the pain and scandal caused by those clergy and laity ministering in the church who sexually abuse minors and vulnerable adults. Even more the “moral catastrophe” stems from the failure of us as a body of bishops to have better accountability for our oversight of our flock and of each other. I am so very, very sorry. 

I want to uplift Pope Francis’ message for all of us to consider as we work together to create better structures of accountability, especially in the case of bishops who abused minors or failed to act in the face of abuse in their own dioceses. These are moral failures and criminal acts that need careful attention.  Please find attached to this message the following:

Pope Francis Letter to the People of God  ENGLISH | SPANISH

Cardinal DiNardo Message to the U.S. Church  ENGLISH | SPANISH

Be assured of my prayers for all of you. Kindly place in prayer all victims of sexual abuse too. They and the healing of their pain need to remain our key focus. 

+Bishop Joseph Tyson
Diocese of Yakima 

Statement of Bishop Joseph J. Tyson, August 17, 2018
Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report

(haz clic aquí para leer en español)

With the recent allegations of sexual abuse committed by Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, former Archbishop of Washington, D.C., and the release of a Grand Jury Report involving several dioceses in Pennsylvania, the tragedy of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church is once again brought to light. The sexual abuse of a minor is an intrinsic moral evil and a crime. Anyone responsible for such an act or for shielding those who do, including bishops and other Church leaders, must be held accountable for their actions. I join with other bishops from throughout Washington and the United States in expressing our sincere shame and remorse for the incredible harm these crimes have caused the victims and their families.

The Catholic Church in Central Washington continues its focus on providing a safe environment for all minors and vulnerable adults in our care. Special procedures, training and reporting protocols were adopted in the 1990s. Our policies, training and procedures are reviewed frequently and have been updated several times.

To report any suspicion of abuse by any Church personnel, please contact local law enforcement. In addition, anyone who has knowledge of sexual abuse or misconduct by a member of the clergy, an employee or volunteer of the Diocese of Yakima is urged to call the diocesan hotline at 1-888-276-4490.

As Catholics, we believe that every life is sacred. Each person is created in the image and likeness of our loving God. Violence and abuse of any kind are unacceptable, and we have a serious responsibility to work towards their end. Together, we must do everything we possibly can to protect our children, young people, and vulnerable adults.

Dear Friends,

We are here in Rome on pilgrimage and are with the Holy Father, Pope Francis, at his Wednesday general audience. By happy coincidence today marks the start of the Holy Father's global campaign, "Share the Journey," where he invites us to walk with migrants refugees and – in his Spanish comments – "campesinos" – something quite particular to our Diocese of Yakima. Today's kickoff points to a Week of Prayer and Action October 7-13. For an overview of the campaign, including personal stories, click here.  For ideas and resources for Catholic leaders planning events for the week, click here.  For a parish toolkit put together by Catholic Relief Services, click here. For ideas for social media, click here. Para recursos en español, haz click aquí.

Here in the Diocese of Yakima we are uniquely positioned to share the journey as Spanish and English speakers forming a single Church witness. Let's "Share the Journey" with each other – especially the migrants and undocumented as well as those young people impacted by DACA. Many prayers.

+Bishop Joseph Tyson
