Although we are currently in unusual circumstances, it is important that we continue to pray together and so we strongly encourage you to join us for the Rosary on Sunday mornings at 8:30am. This will give us time to complete the Rosary in plenty of time to the live stream the Mass from Holy Trinity or St. Joseph Basilica. To join us, call in toll-free by 8:30am by dialing 1-867-292-3030. You will be asked for a code. Enter 6748217# and you will be joined with everyone.
- Below is a beautiful and powerful prayer to St. Joseph. Bishop Athanasius Schneider writes: “Our spiritual father will teach us to place God above all things, strive for purity of heart, maintain a profound interior life, and have boundless confidence in unchanging truth. Now is the time for individuals, families, parishes, and dioceses to consecrate themselves to the spiritual fatherhood of St. Joseph!” Consider praying this attached prayer for 30 days straight (we suggest starting on May 1 as it is St. Joseph the Worker’s feast day) for your family and see the miraculous work of St. Joseph first hand. May God bless you and your family. St. Joseph, pray for us!
