January 16 – 24
Consecration to St. Joseph
Daily brief story about various apparitions of St. Joseph, with prayers
We celebrate the Year of Saint Joseph with a Novena of Prayers for Consecration to Saint Joseph. Beginning January 16, the novena ends with a consecration on January 24, the Feast Day of Saint Francis de Sales who had a fervent devotion to Saint Joseph and avidly encouraged others to rely on Saint Joseph. With this novena, we seal ourselves as his children. We place into his fatherly protection ourselves, our families, our jobs and ministries, and the Church. We also consecrate to his fatherhood those who are not following Christ, especially our own family members, because Joseph’s desire in heaven is that all of his children love his son, Jesus, and follow him to everlasting life.
Also be sure to check out our new webpage of resources for the Year of Saint Joseph for your home and family!

Trail of Roses Lenten Journey
Daily ideas for connecting with Jesus
The gift Jesus gave you when he suffered and died on Good Friday was his very Self, his entire Self. This Lent, give him a gift of yourself — a different gift on each of the 40 days of Lent. We will send you a short daily meditation that contains a suggested gift that you can give to him, a message from Jesus about it, and a prayer.

Consecration to the Holy Spirit
Series of short videos
Become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s promptings! Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you can receive more from your personal relationship with the Third Person of the Holy Trinity than what you’re currently experiencing. By opening yourself to the truths that will be revealed in this 44-day CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, your life will never be the same.
The event begins on April 24, 2021. Each day you will receive a prayer and a short video. You will learn how to hear the Holy Spirit and start living in the power of the Holy Spirit. Consecration day will be May 23, Pentecost. Afterward, we will continue in a Mystagogia Period for two weeks of learning how to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, ending on June 4, the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
May your spirit leap for joy as the Holy Spirit embraces you — because you actually feel it!
