About St. Joseph
Our parish is blessed with two Patron Saints, our Blessed Mother under the title of the Immaculate Conception, and her husband St. Joseph. In his Apostolic Letter "Patris corde", which translates to "With a Father's Heart", Pope Francis proclaimed a "Year of Saint Joseph" from the December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021. During the year dedicated to St. Joseph, our parish said a prayer at the end of each Mass asking for St. Joseph's intercession. We encourage the faithful to continue to learn more about St. Joseph and seek both his and the Blessed Mother's protection and help.

Prayer to St. Joseph
(Added by Pope Francis in his Apostolic Letter)
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
