The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father
What does it mean to consecrate yourself to St. Joseph?
Total consecration to St. Joseph means you make a formal act of filial entrustment to St. Joseph as your spiritual father so that he can take care of your spiritual well-being and lead you to God. The person who consecrates himself to St. Joseph wants to be as close to their spiritual father as possible, to the point of resembling him in virtue and holiness. Saint Joseph, in turn, will give those consecrated to him his undivided attention, protection, and guidance.
If you have already consecrated yourself to the Virgin Mary, can you be consecrated to St. Joseph, as well?
"Yes!” God desires that all children be committed to the care of a mother and a father. You are not a member of a single-parent spiritual family. Mary is your spiritual mother, and St. Joseph is your spiritual father.
Consecration to St. Joseph emulates the tried-and-true preparation method employed by St. Louis de Montfort in his Marian consecration, highlighting many of St. Joseph"s titles, privileges, and heroic virtues.
The program of preparation and consecration takes 33 days. We will begin on March 30 at 7:00pm in the church for our kickoff. After that, all participants will complete the readings and prayers privately before coming together again for a special Mass on the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, May 1st, at 11:00am.
If you are interested, please register here no later than March 1st. The consecration books will be available at church on the evening of March 30th or at the Parish Office for those unable to gather on March 30th.
