A Few Notes

Fr. Francis is leaving for Uganda today on a 5 PM flight. Your prayers and sacrifices for his safe and easy travel are much appreciated. He will be returning in mid-September. May God bless him, and may Archangel Raphael go with him and protect him!

Tomorrow is the First Saturday of the month. Plan to go to Confession, Communion, pray a Rosary, and spend 15 minutes in prayer with Our Lady, contemplating the mysteries of the Rosary. Let's do our part, obey our Blessed Mother and help to make St. Joseph the Worker Church a beacon of holiness in the Diocese! God is waiting for us to ask for His grace.

Prayer for Our Parish

Dear God,
I believe that you have the ability to convert everyone at St. Joseph the Worker Church and I beg you to perform miracles in our lives that we will come to love you and never want to offend you.
I beg you to let us see our sins and run to the confessional, that the lines will be out the door.
Set the hearts of our priests on fire so that they burn with the desire for the conversion of every soul in the parish.
I implore you to make St. Joseph's a beacon in our diocese, that souls will be drawn by the holiness they find here.
I ask that you blind Satan to every parishioner, that they might have the space to know and love you without temptation.
I offer myself to you completely at whatever the cost.
Amen
