Our focus this Advent season is on the Holy Family. Since our spiritual theme this year is "A Family of Faith", we want to focus more on the Holy Family this Advent season. Today, let us focus on Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus. Since 2021 is dedicated to St. Joseph, let us pray a special prayer asking that he bring our intentions to Jesus.
Thank you for the example of St. Joseph
in the way he cared for his family.
As a family of faith,
help us this Advent season,
to care for others in our family and community.
Give us the strength to do the right things,
even when it is difficult.
Help us to prepare our hearts during Advent,
so we can truly welcome the Christ Child at Christmas.
Through Christ our Lord,
South Entrance - Mr. Holash
