Consecration to St. Joseph
This year, Pope Francis has named this the year of St. Joseph. One of the possible deciding factors of how the Holy Spirit moved his heart might have been when he met with Fr. Donald Colloway and he gifted him the book Consecration to St. Joseph. As we are preparing to have a blessed 2021 (with Lent just around the corner), this is a great opportunity to grow in the faith. Just like we did several years ago with Fr. Michael Gaitley’s 33 Days to Morning Glory, we will be working with a group meeting over zoom periodically to help hold each other accountable and to encourage us to keep going. We will be using Fr. Colloway’s book Consecration to St. Joseph. If you have already consecrated yourself to Mary, you are more than welcome to still give you heart to Joseph as well. We have a spiritual Mother and a Spiritual Father who happen to love each other and to love us. We have worked with the publisher to obtain books at half price for $8. There will be a google form to tell us that you are interested in praying.
