Our Loving Journey with Saint Joseph

Our Consecration to Saint Joseph took place last Sunday, Feb 7 during our Mass, culminating our 33-day preparation which began last Jan 1, 2021.
Due to the snowstorm on that day, the time for the Mass was moved from 10am to 8:30am at the last minute. But this did not stop a good number of people from braving the snowstorm and coming to the glorious celebration of the Eucharist, including those from our Zoom Rosary group who joined us for the Consecration to St Joseph.

Everyone in the congregation prayed the Consecration to St Joseph and received a St Joseph medal & prayer card. Those in the congregation who participated in the 33-day preparation received their Certificates of Consecration which they signed at the altar. Below is a photo of some of the people who participated in the 33-day journey with St Joseph.
Our next round of 33-Day Preparation for the Consecration to St Joseph will begin this Sunday, Feb 14, culminating on March 19, the Feast of St Joseph.
This will be a retreat for men.

Calling all the men in the parish and beyond!

Also below- for those who do not yet have the consecration book (delay in shipment), you can download the first 7 days of reading in next section.

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.
Your first Zoom meeting is tomorrow, Sunday:

Welcome to Consecration to St. Joseph! You are about to begin a journey that will change your life.

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:

Consecration to St. Joseph (Part 1) -

Below: The Truth About St. Joseph and Spiritual Warfare (Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC) and why we are doing the 33-Day Consecration to St Joseph.
THE YEAR OF ST JOSEPH was proclaimed by Pope Francis last Dec 8, 2020, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Perfect timing!!!
Vatican News

Pope Francis on Tuesday announced a special year dedicated to St. Joseph starting from 8 December 2020 until 8 December 2021, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of St. Joseph as the Patron of the Universal Church, as well as the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady.
