Solemnity of Saint Joseph Celebration

Don’t forget about our celebration tomorrow, Friday, March 19, for the Solemnity of St. Joseph! We begin the day with Daily Mass at 8:30, followed immediately by Adoration and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 9 am to 9 pm.

Then, join us at 7 pm for both Stations of the Cross and Confession! This week’s Stations will be led by our music director, Scott Ewing, and members of our talented choir! You can join the live stream for Stations of the Cross at the button below.

Also, did you know that because tomorrow is a solemnity, Catholics do not have to abstain from meat or practice their Lenten penances (fasting, giving up certain foods, etc.)? Enjoy your celebrations!

It’s the Year of St. Joseph!

By Vatican News

In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows.

The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” beginning on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2020 and extending to the same feast in 2021.
