Consecration to St. Joseph

Pope Francis recently proclaimed this year (beginning on December 8, 2020 until December 8, 2021) as the Year of St. Joseph. In honor of this event, St. Henry Parish will participate in the Consecration to St. Joseph, presented just last year by Fr. Donald Calloway.

Pope St. John Paul II says of St. Joseph: "Inspired by the Gospel, the Fathers of the Church from the earliest centuries stressed that just as St. Joseph took loving care of Mary and gladly dedicated himself to Jesus Christ's upbringing, he likewise watches over and protects Christ's Mystical Body, that is, the Church, of which the Virgin Mary is the exemplar and model."

Those interested in participating in the consecration will need a copy of the book: "Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father." The book contains a thorough program of consecration to St. Joseph (focusing on one of the invocations from the Litany of St. Joseph each of the 33 days - except for days 1 & 2 which focus on introductions to consecration and the Litany); information on the ten wonders of St. Joseph; and prayers and devotions to St. Joseph. Participants will be asked to begin reading the book on Monday, February 15, with the consecration taking place after a special Mass at 7:00 PM on the 33rd day, Friday, March 19, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Books will be available after Masses this weekend and are available now in the parish office. between 9:00 AM-3:00 PM. The cost of the book is $10; donations to help offset the cost of the books would be greatly appreciated. The books can also be ordered online at or downloaded to your Kindle at

If you would like to receive a daily email as a reminder to read each day's reflection or if you have questions about the Consecration to St. Joseph, please email Laura Ryan at or call 859-727-2035.
