Welcome to the Parish of St. Joseph Catholic Community in Bracebridge.
The Holy Father Pope Francis declared this year, Dec. 8, 2020-Dec. 8, 2021, dedicated to St. Joseph, to mark its 150th anniversary of the declaration as the Patron of the Universal Church.
Our Parish will be doing some spiritual activities in order for everyone to enrich the understanding of the importance of the event and the celebration.
The current world crisis brought by the pandemic of the coronavirus would limit everyone to come together and gather physically, but we are prayerfully hopeful that we can celebrate the event maybe virtually.
Let us all together look forward enthusiastically and prayerfully to celebrate the Year of St. Joseph.
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil.
