Year of St. Joseph
St. Joseph: The Pillar of Patience
St. Joseph is known as the pillar of patience. Imagine the patience needed to raise the Son of God and accept God’s calling without knowing exactly what is going on. Patience and Patient both come from the Latin root word pati which is translated to suffering. Join us for a testimony from Beth Mowatt about how she can evangelize her faith in the healthcare field without every saying “God”. Guest Speaker: Beth Mowatt
St. Joseph: The Pillar of Families
St. Joseph was the head of the Holy Family. Through this role he became the pillar of families by protecting his family in all ways. The family, which is founded and given life by love, is meant to be an effective sign of Christ in the world. So it is no wonder that the Evil One wants to destroy it. Join us as we reflect on how we can promote families in our faith and our society. Sunday, August 22, 2021- 6:00 pm Guest Speaker: Cami Mann

St. Joseph: Spouse of the Mother of the Son of God
