Why do we recite the Rosary on the 13th of Every Month?

The Holy Rosary, also known as the Dominican Rosary refers to a form of prayer used in the Catholic Church and to the string of knots or beads (crown of roses) used to count the component prayers.

One hundred years ago, Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three children -- Lucia dos Santos, and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto -- on the 13th of each month from May to October in 1917.  Each time she appeared to the children, she encouraged them to pray the rosary every day for peace and to offer sacrifice for those souls who have no one to pray for them.

Father Donald Calloway started "The Thirteen of the Month Club" which is named in honor of the day of the month that Mary chose for her appearances to the children of Fatima.  On this day, members pray the Rosary for each other's intentions.  Additionally, the Marians residing in Fatima, Portugal offer a special Mass on the 13th of each month for member's intentions.  For more information on this club go to: www.fathercalloway.com.

Please join us at St. Joseph Parish to pray the Holy Rosary at 7PM on the 13th day of each month, either by the Statue of Mary or inside the church during bad weather. 



Congratulations To All Who Were Confirmed!

This past May 17th, 37 young men and women received the gifts of the Holy Spirit through the Sacrament of Confirmation: Wisdom, Understanding, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety and Wonder and Awe in God’s presence. Archbishop Leonard Blair anointed the Candidates with Holy Chrism, and extended his hands over each one of them and said, "Be sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit."

With its powerful effects and vibrant symbols, Confirmation is considered to be one of God's great gifts to Catholics. Please keep all our candidates in your prayers. 

 

 


Congratulations to all the children who received their First Communion, on Saturday, May 12, 2019! 

May the light of the Lord shine bright in all your ways, and may you continue to receive Jesus with the same piety and enthusiasm as when you did on the day of your First Communion.
