Rosary Processions in Honor of Our Lady of Fatima
On the 13th of each month from May to October, we will have a rosary procession in honor of Our Lady of Fatima. Please join us in honoring Our Lady and making a public profession of faith during these processions. The processions will take place after Mass; however, if the 13th falls on a Friday, then the procession will take place before Mass at 6:00 PM.
O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell,
lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those who are most in need of Thy mercy.
If you are a visitor to St. Joseph Catholic Church, we are happy to have you join us. All Masses at Saint Joseph are offered in the Tridentine Rite, in accordance with the liturgical books of 1962. Blue booklet missals are available in the pews to help you follow along with the Latin Mass. The readings can be found in the bulletin available in the vestibule.
Please take a blue registration form from the vestibule if you would like to register as a parishioner at St. Joseph.
Choir Members Wanted
Sacred music has a very important place in the worship of the Church. Having beautiful sacred music can only be achieved through much dedication on the part of the choir. New members are always welcome. Men are particularly needed at this time. If interested or if you would like some more information, please contact (please be sure to write “Choir” in the subject line). Rehearsals are on Friday evenings from 4:30-6:15 (prior to the 6:30 PM Mass) and on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15 in St. Joseph’s Hall (a.k.a. the basement).
Pray for Our Pastor
Please remember to keep Fr. Stinson, FSSP, in your daily prayers.
A Prayer for Priests
O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world's contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and their everlasting crown hereafter. O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many holy priests. Amen.
