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.

From his 12/26/2013 Lenten message Pope Francis tells us: "When power, luxury and money become idols, they take priority over the need for a fair distribution of wealth. Our consciences thus need to be converted to justice, equality, simplicity and sharing." Catholic Community Services and Catholic Housing Services of Western Washington are prophetic voices for justice, recognizing the sacredness and dignity of every human person. Rooted in the Gospel message of hope, we will continue to be leaders, advocates, providers and partners serving poor and vul...
