Year of St. Joseph Parish Events

My parish, Our Lady of the Presentation, is posting a monthly theme for the Year of St. Joseph, and will also be celebrating a votive mass in honor of St. Joseph on the last Wednesday of each month. We will be praying for St. Joseph’s protection and prayers. Our theme for January was “Most Valiant Protector of the Church.”

My pastor also created these lovely holy cards for this Year of St. Joseph with the prayer of Pope Francis:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.

What’s going on in your parish for this special year?
