Thanksgiving Mass will be held on Thursday, November 26 at 9AM. All are welcome to bring their Thanksgiving bread and wine to be blessed during the mass. There will be a free will offering to benefit the local food pantries.
St. Joseph Parish and The Knights of Columbus will again give food baskets to families in need for Thanksgiving. To help defray the cost of the food, please place money in the envelopes that can be found in the Narthex. Please call the parish office at 679-8805 if you know of a family who could use a basket.
PRAYER OF ST. JOSEPH
Oh, 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. Oh, 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.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of 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 me. Amen.
