2024 Annual Diocesan Appeal
Sharing His Love with Others
Over the past couple of weekends, you have been hearing about the 2024 Annual Diocesan Appeal.
With a goal of $4,169,230, the 2024 Appeal will provide critical funding to many diverse and impactful ministries that affect the lives of thousands of people in our Diocese.
In early February, many of you will receive a letter from Bishop Knestout asking for your support of the 2024 Appeal. It is our sincere hope that you will answer our Bishop’s request and make a generous commitment to this effort.
Please see the bulletin or click here for more information.

Prayer to St. Joseph
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
The Ancient Prayer to St. Joseph recited at the end of Mass, with the intention: for the persecuted Church ad intra and ad extra, and for the relief of all Christians suffering all forms of persecution:
O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interest and desires. O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him close in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen.
