 A Year of Saint Joseph

2021 Opportunities to Walk a Year beside St Joseph

On December 8, 2020, Pope Francis issued an Apostolic Letter entitled “With a Father’s Heart.” In this letter the Pope proclaimed a ‘Year of St. Joseph’ for 2021. This was on the 150th anniversary of the declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.

In honor of St Joseph, we will be offering various opportunities to travel along side of St Joseph through various prayers, novena, and reflections. Did you know there are prayers in honor of the Seven Sorrows and Seven Joys of St. Joseph as well as a 30-Day Novena prayer.

These are just some of the opportunities we will be starting to put together within the next few weeks. If you would like to help, please contact the Faith Formation Office at holychildfaithformation@gmail.com


2021 Parish Faith Sharing through Small Group

Learn How Easy it is to use ZOOM on your computer or Tablet

We have been commissioned to go out and make disciples with Jesus showing us that the best way to carry that out is through small groups of believers. 2020 was a challenging year with COVID-19 but also exciting as we have been able to create safe environments where spiritual growth can still take place.

This past Advent is a perfect example. Parishioners of various ages gathered every Tuesday evening in the comfort of their home to journey with Mary and one another through ZOOM. We were able to create a safe environment where the message of the gospel was lived out through the practice of sharing with one-another.  It was was through our interaction with one another that we wer able to redevelop a connection through our journey as a small group.

We are hoping to continue this amazing journey during 2021 by looking at our next great adventures that will start the end of January. We know that some are apprehensive about using ZOOM and we want to help ease those concerns.

Zoom: All you need is a laptop or tablet that has a camera. Once you register, an email will be sent to you with a link. It is just as easy as you are clicking onto the link to view our Sunday Mass. We wil help walk through the 3 easy questions you will need to answer in order to start joining us. Please let us know if you are interested by emailing Joanna at holychildfaithformation@gmail.com

Prayer

God, Almighty Father, when Mary surrendered herself to your Word, she conceived Christ first in her mind through faith, in her heart through hope and love, and finally in her body through the marvelous operation of your Holy Spirit. By her eagerness to be the mother of your Son, she opened the floodgates of your merciful love for all men and women. May she help all people to live by faith, hope, love, and obedience to your will. May she remind us always that you want to bring salvation to our brothers and sisters through our faith and good works. Help us to accept fully our responsibility to combat the culture of death and foster the culture of life in our American society. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

 

 

Didi you know that Pope Paul VI, in his apostolic exhortation Marialis Cultus (1974), called the Solemnity of Mary “a fitting occasion for renewing adoration of the newborn Prince of Peace, for listening once more to the glad tidings of the angels (Luke 2:14), and for imploring from God, through the Queen of Peace, the supreme gift of peace.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Though New Year’s Day may seem more like a day for parades and football than for Mary, there’s a beautiful spiritual significance in celebrating her during the heart of the Christmas season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Solemnities are the highest rank of liturgical celebration within our Catholic faith. By celebrating a solemnity dedicated to Mary’s motherhood, the Church highlights the significance of her role in the life of Christ.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

My Jesus,

I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there and united myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen
