Blessed St. Joseph Icon
Flowing from the Year of St. Joseph declared by Pope Francis, and inspired by his apostolic letter Patris Corde, comes our new Pilgrim Icon Program in honor of St. Joseph.
This Icon of St. Joseph has been blessed by Cardinal Konrad Karjewski. He is the “Almoner of His Holiness”.
There is a partial Indulgence associated with prayer with any Blessed Sacramental.
Bearing those words in mind, I (Pope Francis) chose to entrust my service as Supreme Knight to St. Joseph, and through this Pilgrim Icon Program, we can all turn in prayer to St. Joseph. We give thanks to God for the gift of his fatherly example, and we ask St. Joseph to be a father to us. Along the way, may we also grow in our own imitation of St. Joseph’s quiet strength, integrity and fidelity.
There will be a Prayer Service on Tuesday, June 7th at 7 pm in the Church to honor and venerate this Icon of St. Joseph. Please join us in prayer.

“St. Joseph’s example of ‘creative courage’ in the fulfillment of his vocation as father of the Holy Family makes him a particularly good model for all those men who, in these times of uncertainty and unrest, seek to persevere in fidelity to our Lord and his Church, entrusting their lives and the lives of their families to his providential guidance and care.”
