Please join us very soon, March 11th through March 19th, in our Novena to St. Joseph. You may send us your prayer intentions at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post mail.
We look forward to celebrating his feast day this year more than usual, since our Holy Father Pope Francis has declared 2021 as the Year of Saint Joseph! All through this year we can grow in our knowledge and love of this special saint, and ask him to speak kind words to his little boy, the Christ, on our behalf. “The prayer of a just man is powerful, indeed,” says James 5:16. As we would ask a just man who we know to be close to God to pray for us, we can also ask the same of those in heaven. Who in heaven is closer to Jesus than his own mother and father? So, let us ask.
