The 2021 Annual Appeal will fund essential programs and ministries at the heart of our Catholic mission in our four counties – namely to proclaim the gospel, to pass on the faith to future generations, particularly through the celebration of the sacraments, and to care for the poor and those on the margins. Now more than ever, especially during this health crisis, our ministries and programs need your support.

Will you prayerfully consider making a gift to the 2021 Annual Appeal?

Pope Francis proclaims “Year of St Joseph”

THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH

“EACH OF US CAN DISCOVER IN JOSEPH – THE MAN WHO GOES UNNOTICED, A DAILY, DISCREET AND HIDDEN PRESENCE – AN INTERCESSOR, A SUPPORT AND A GUIDE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE.” — Pope Francis, Patris Corde

 

Saint JosephWith the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021.

 

Saint Joseph is the guardian of the Holy Family, the Church, and laborers everywhere.

At the conclusion of his Letter, Pope Francis adds another prayer to St Joseph, which he encourages all of us to pray together:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil.  Amen.

 

ST. JOSEPH INTERCESSIONS
THE ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK

That, during this Year of St. Joseph, we may care for one another the way Joseph cared for Jesus, the Son of God. We pray:

That all fathers may be inspired during this Year of Saint Joseph to imitate him as loving husbands and parents to their families. We pray:

That all refugees may be consoled during this Year of Saint Joseph by the saint who cared for his family when fleeing danger. We pray:

For all who labor to earn their daily bread; may they be strengthened during this Year of Saint Joseph, and may they receive a just wage. We pray:

For all those who quietly minister in the Lord’s vineyard. May they be inspired by Joseph, the silent saint, to work humbly for God. We pray:

For all families, that during this Year of Saint Joseph they may grow together in joy and love, as did Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We pray:

For unborn children and their parents;
For the elderly and the seriously ill;
For those on death row and all victims of violence; may all life be protected through the intercession of Saint Joseph. We pray:

Entrance Antiphon, Cf. Lk 4:18: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me and sent me to preach the good news to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted.Gospel Verse, Jn 10:14: I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine know me.Communion Antiphon, Cf. Ps 107 (106):8-9:/span>Let them thank the Lord for his mercy, his wonders for the children of men, for he satisfies the thirsty soul, and the hungry he fills with good things. St. Vincent de Paul (1581-1660) was born in Gascony, France, and died in Paris. He studied theology at Toulouse and was ordained a priest in 1600. As a young priest he fell into the hands of Mohammedan pirates who carried him off to Africa. After his return to France he became successively parish priest, grand almoner of the galley slaves, and spiritual director of the Visitation nuns. He founded the Congregation of the Priests of the Mission or Lazarists to preach especially to country people. With the help of Louise de Marillac he established the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity to care for young girls, for the needy, sick, and foundlings. He died at St. Lazarus's which was the center of his Congregation. Leo XIII proclaimed him special patron of charitable institutions.
