Pope Francis has declared a Year of St. Joseph from Dec. 8, 2020 – Dec. 8, 2021. Let's join together for an outpouring of grace by consecrating to St. Joseph! Let us each entrust ourselves entirely to St. Joseph and, in the words of author Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, "become a faithful, loving, and trusting companion to Jesus and Mary!"
Here’s how you can participate:
Get the consecration book Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father, by Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC. Price: Your donation, plus $5.25 shipping. Offered until March 1. Visit StJosephNow.org or call 1-800-462-7426. (One per household)
Then consider a few of the upcoming Year of St. Joseph Consecration Opportunities
Sign up at St JosephNow.org. to join the Marian Fathers in a worldwide consecration to St. Joseph! Begin the consecration on Feb. 15, so that you can complete the consecration on March 19 — the Solemnity of St. Joseph! (If the timing is too tight, here's another option: Begin the consecration on March 30, so that you can complete the consecration on May 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker!)
Join a Group Consecration preparation offered by Sharon Ryan and Mary Eaton below:
Year of St. Joseph Group Consecration Opportunity!
Join a group preparation offered by Sharon Ryan and Mary Eaton beginning on April 11 to complete the consecration on May 13 (Our Lady of Fatima).
For 33 days you will read the book Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual and learn about St. Joseph, his many virtues, his faith in God, his love of Mary and Jesus and his love for us. The reading and prayers (which takes 20 – 25 minutes per day) lead you into a personal relationship with your spiritual father allowing him to love, watch over and protect you! At the end of the 33 days, you make a formal act to consecrate yourself to St. Joseph.
