Please Join Us in our

Novena to Saint Joseph

Dear Friends,


On December 8, 2020, the 150th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis announced that the coming year would be dedicated to Joseph, Spouse of Mary and Foster Father of Jesus.  We joyfully embrace Our Holy Father’s declaration and invite you to join us in prayer as we place our needs in the care of this loving, just, and courageous father.  In Joseph, Jesus saw and experienced the tender, untiring love of God.

During these anxious days of Covid and multi-faceted social justice issues, as we pray for the pandemic to end and peace to be restored, Pope Francis points us to Joseph’s acceptance and creative courage in the midst of life’s difficulties.  Let us go to Joseph with confidence and trust.

With our love and gratitude,
Your Carmelite Sisters
