Who can be a better teacher to men on how to become an authentic father and a true man than St Joseph himself?

More than ever, this world needs strong men to be role models for their families and communities.

It is surely by God's design that this year has been declared as the YEAR OF SAINT JOSEPH.

We just ended the first round of 33-day Preparation for Consecration to St Joseph ( Jan 1 to Feb 2) for the parish in general led by Fr Joseph. Our consecration took place during our Mass on Feb 7.

This recent 33-Day Preparation & Consecration was such an amazing encounter with Saint Joseph that Fr Joseph has decided to start this next round of the 33-day journey with Saint Joseph, but this time, "for men only."

While this is a home retreat (15- 20 minutes reading a day), the men will be meeting on Zoom with Fr Joseph for 5 Sunday nights for prayers & group sharing. This will be at 7:45 pm, after our parish Rosary.
The first Zoom meeting was last night.

Dates for the 5 Sunday night Zoom meetings with Fr Joseph @ 7:45pm
Feb 14, Feb 21, Feb 28, Mar 7 & Mar 14

The actual day of Consecration to St Joseph will be on Friday, March 19, 2021, on the Solemnity of St Joseph, during our 8pm Mass.

By Fr Donald Calloway.

What does it mean to consecrate yourself to St. Joseph?
What does it mean for a person to be consecrated to St. Joseph? Well, it basically means that you acknowledge that he is your spiritual father, and you want to be like him. To show it, you entrust yourself entirely into his paternal care so that he can help you acquire his virtues and become holy. Read more:
