2021 Year of St. Joseph

Pope Francis declared a “Year of St. Joseph” from 8 December 2020 - 8 December 2021. It’s a great way to grow in devotion to the guardian of the Redeemer and the patron of the Universal Church.

As part of this celebration, I’m encouraging everyone at the parish to join together and participate in the Consecration to St. Joseph!  Whether as individuals, couples, or families, we can all renew our love of Jesus through the intercession of St. Joseph.

If you’d like to do the consecration but cannot purchase the book, you can simply recite a prayer to St. Joseph for 33 days (for example, the Litany of St. Joseph) and conclude on the final day with the consecration prayer below.

Our Parish 33-day consecration began on March 30 and concluded May 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, but can be done at anytime!  

O God, Creator of all things,
who laid down for the human race the law of work,
graciously grant
that by the example of Saint Joseph and under his patronage
we may complete the works you set us to do
and attain the rewards you promise.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen.
