On Saturday, May 1, at 10:00 AM, the Marian Fellowship Group will host a prayer service on the Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker (in the sanctuary). This feast was instituted by Pope Pius XII. It is celebrated on May 1, which corresponds to the day labor is honored in many countries. In the Gospel, Matthew 13:54-58, Jesus is called “the son of the carpenter.” Human labor, no matter how ordinary, can be sanctified, which in turn can sanctify oneself and others, making each of the faithful a participant in Christ’s work of redemption. Prayers will be offered for those seeking work and workers. We will also pray a novena to Saint Joseph the Worker. We hope that you will join us for this celebration of the Feast of Saint. Joseph the Worker.
Saint Joseph, Model of Workers, pray for us!
