Prayer

Feast of St. Joseph

March 19 is the Feast of St. Joseph, patron saint of the Sisters of St. Joseph — therefore, an important day for the congregation. Here’s how Sister Josephine Conlin describes her connection to the saint: 

Second Sunday of Advent

The second candle, also purple, represents faith. It is called the “Bethlehem Candle” as a reminder of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem.

World Day of Prayer for Vocations

We would like to share Pope Francis’ prayer for this special day on April 22.

Feast Day of St. Josephine Bakhita: Prayer and Resources

February 8 is the feast day of Saint Josephine Bakhita, a Canossian Sister who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Sudan but eventually won her freedom. Consequently, February 8 is also the International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking.
