Pope Francis declared 2021 as the Year of St. Joseph. Throughout the year we strive to honor St. Joseph as the guardian and protector of the Church and her faithful with heartfelt prayer and devotion, encouraging all to take his virtuous life as our model for fulfilling our personal vocation to holiness. As the Patron of our Parish, we are sharing one of his virtues in our Sunday Bulletin each month and are excited to offer these special programs throughout the year:
