St. Joseph Novena

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.

Lay Orders

In November the Mom’s meeting focused on Lay Orders. Three Religious Groups were represented: the Franciscans, the Dominicans, and the Discalced Carmelites. Also, representatives from the Legion of Mary spoke about active and auxiliary membership. All the talks included information about the history of the order and the prayer life of its members. Our own Carol T. gave a truly (Holy) spirit-filled talk on the Carmelites. For further information please contact Rebecca C., who did a great job organizing this event.
