    On May 5, 2017, the world lost an angel on earth. Father Joseph L. Petosa passed away peacefully at the age of 87. Born in March 11, 1930 to Italian immigrants, Michele and Mary Petosa, Father Petosa was raised within a large family being the first son, among what was to be a family of ten. His siblings were all accomplished business owners within the local community, but Father Petosa took the lead as the family Patriarch upon his ordination in 1955. The family lived in the Greenlake area and Father Petosa attended St. Benedicts elementary then went on to attend St. Edwards Seminary for high school and college, after which he was ordained on May 21, 1955 in St. James Cathedral by Archbishop Thomas A. Connolly.

    Father Petosa served as pastor of Assumption Parish in Seattle (1982-88), St. Luke Parish in Shoreline (1971-82) and St. Mary of the Valley Parish in Monroe (1966-71). He also served at St. Brendan Parish in Bothell (1965-66), St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Tacoma (1964-65) and Holy Rosary Parish in Seattle (1955-64). Father Petosa’s first mass as a priest and last assignment as a pastor were at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Everett. Although he was officially “retired,” he continued to be actively involved in both Holy Rosary Parish in Edmonds, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help until his death.
