‘Year of St Joseph’ and Consecrating Yourself to St Joseph

~ Pope Francis has declared this year (December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021) as ‘The Year of St Joseph’.  He has encouraged the members of the Church to re-enliven their commitment and devotion to St Joseph.  To this end, please consider finding out how to prepare yourself/your family for consecrating yourself to St Joseph and then actually doing so, by checking out this website: https://stjosephnow.org/ . On this site, you can even officially sign up and receive assistance in the preparation for consecration as well as the consecratory prayer itself.  On this website you will notice it is highly recommended to prepare for this great and powerful consecration on March 19th, which is the most solemn celebration associated with St Joseph in the entire liturgical year, the ‘Solemnity of St Joseph, Spouse of Blessed Virgin Mary’.  St Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, Pray for Us!
