Bishop Joseph Tyson of the Diocese of Yakima joined us again to share his heart for the priesthood and the people of God. He’s a native of the Diocese of Yakima, but grew up in the Seattle area, where he was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Seattle in 1989. He received his call to the priesthood while involved in campus ministry at the University of Washington. He is a self-proclaimed “radio geek” who is deeply committed to the spread of Catholic radio throughout his region. He talked about the importance of family life in connection to priestly vocations, as the average age of a Catholic in his diocese is twenty-three.

"For me, it is a great joy to be together with priests." -Pope Benedict XVI
