Please keep the Confirmation students in prayer as they begin the Confirmation process. They will be meeting Wednesday Evenings through April, then again in September to prepare for a November Confirmation. They will also work with their Confirmation Sponsor over the summer months. We ask God to be with them as they make this journey and that the Holy Spirit will open their hearts to the Gifts of the Spirit.

Dec 20, 2020 - Dec 20, 2021 (click here for Prayer To St Joseph)
In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows.
The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” beginning on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2020 and extending to the same feast in 2021.
The Holy Father wrote Patris corde against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, which, he says, has helped us see more clearly the importance of “ordinary” people who, though far from the limelight, exercise patience and offer hope every day. In this, they resemble Saint Joseph, “the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence,” who nonetheless played “an incomparable role in the history of salvation.”
