Blessing of the Shrine of Saint Joseph

“St. Joseph is the foster father of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He’s the patron saint of fathers. Joseph is also the protector of the Church. He’s one of the patrons of refugees, because he took Mary and Jesus, when Jesus was a baby, to safety in Egypt, to flee the wrath of the tyrannical King Herod. Joseph is also the patron saint of laborers, because he was a working man, a carpenter. He’s the patron saint of families and, here’s a beautiful one, he’s the patron saint of those who are dying.” – Cardinal Dolan  (Feast Day March 19).

A special thank you to: Bishop Garcia, Fr. Matthew Spencer O.S.J.,
Fr. Patrick Dooling, Fr. Dat Nyugen and Deacon
