Consecration of Jesus through St. Joseph
On December 8, 2021, the Year of St. Joseph will come to an end. Throughout this past year we have had many opportunities to grow closer to St. Joseph, imitating his virtues and asking for his intercession.
And now, we’ve saved the best for last. Fr. Jim Rodia presents a unique perspective on this great Saint.
Fr. Jim will speak about ‘Joseph as the Israeli man,’ ‘the concerned husband of Mary, ’and ‘the foster father of Jesus.’ Fr. Jim’s reflection will be available to you via the St. Norbert website or YouTube channel. St. Joseph, pray for us!
Peace, Deacon Hank

On December 8, the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis proclaimed a Year of Saint Joseph from December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021. A plenary indulgence will be granted to Catholics who recite any approved prayer or act of piety in honor of St. Joseph. Here’s how it works…
We invite you to join us in celebrating the Consecration of St. Joseph from July 26th to September 8th, 2021 by viewing our daily 5-minute video and listening to the daily reflection to St. Joseph that 44 parishioners will offer to us. Save the date of Wednesday, September 8th after the 7:30am Mass in the Church for the close of the Consecration and the Nativity of Mary feast day.
Just as Jesus and Mary entrusted themselves entirely to the care and protection of St. Joseph as the head of the Holy Family, so too can we follow their example. “Jesus, living under the roof of St. Joseph and being his Son, gave us a personal example of total entrustment to St. Joseph” (Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC).
We may be familiar with consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary, which consists of 44 days of spiritual preparation. In recognition of the emphasis the Church has placed on St. Joseph in recent centuries, St. Norbert Parish is introducing a similar Consecration to St. Joseph complete with 44 days of readings and prayers leading up to a prayer of consecration recited on a feast day connected to St. Joseph.
