Novena in honor of St. Joseph
Join Bishop W. Shawn McKnight in praying the novena in honor of St. Joseph in preparation for the solemnity on March 20. As patron of our cathedral, our spiritual home, St. Joseph holds a particularly special place in the heart of our community.
Ant: Saint Joseph, our protector, pray for us.
V. Behold, the faithful and wise servant.
R. Whom the Lord has placed over His household.
V. Let us pray. Heavenly Father, at the beginnings of our salvation, when Blessed Mary conceived your Son and brought Him forth into the world, You placed them under Saint Joseph’s watchful care. May his prayers help Your Church to be an equally faithful guardian of Your mysteries, and a sign of Christ to all humanity. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
