Dear Friends and Visitors of our parish,
This year St Joseph’s celebrates its 110th anniversary. Below is our anniversary prayer, which we pray in thanksgiving. If you would like to be part of our celebration in the spiritual sense, please say the prayer for our St Joseph’s parish. Thank you and God bless.
“Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” (Matt 1:20-21) NRSV
110th Anniversary Year Prayer
Loving God, You manifest Your power by love and mercy.
We give thanks for the past,
and those whose faith and dedication to God have blessed
our parish these many years.
We recognize Your presence today.
We ask You to send Your Spirit of justice and love
upon us to renew us for the future,
and inspire us to be people eager to respond
to the Gospel message today.
May St. Joseph’s Parish always be
a school from which we never graduate,
but grow deeper in our knowledge of You.
With Your grace may we
continue to live, work, serve,
and share our faith and gifts
with one another and others.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
Holy Mary, Mother of God – pray for us.
St. Joseph – pray for us.
