What is the Consecration to St. Joseph?
St. Joseph, the spouse of Mary, is a great example of how to live one's vocation, dedicate oneself to God, and stay close to the Blessed Mother. The Consecration to St. Joseph includes 33 days of preparation, where we learn about the virtues and holiness of St. Joseph and how this great saint can assist us in our lives today. After spending about a month learning and reflecting upon his life, we are given the opportunity to consecrate ourselves to St. Joseph's care, asking him to intercede for us always.
33 Days of Preparation
At our parishes, we are offering group preparation for consecration. Group preparation includes:
- Daily, Personal Reading & Reflection
All who participate will need Fr. Donald Calloway's book, "The Consecration to St. Joseph." This book will guide us through the 33 days of preparation, with readings and reflections for each day. See below for information about purchasing this book.
- Weekly Group Meetings beginning February 15
We will meet on Monday evenings from February 15 to March 15, following 6:00-7:00 PM Confession and Eucharistic Adoration. Men will meet at St. Rose or on Zoom at 7:05 PM. Women will meet at St. Agnes or on Zoom at 7:30 PM. Please register for a group meeting below. Each meeting includes readings, discussion, and prayer. A more detailed explanation of the consecration will be provided at the first meeting.
