We learn more about them from people we know and from the world we live in. The Holy Spirit is with us as we learn. For help in preparing of Confirmation go too https://www.

Prayer to St. Joseph. ( Composed by Fr. Kevin O’Gorman SMA)

God our heavenly Father; grant us the fortitude of Christ your Son to face the Covid – 19 crisis with trust, patience and compassion.

Give us the grace of the Holy Spirit to free us from fear and look forward together to the future with healing and hope .

Through the intercession of St. Joseph, the guardian of Jesus, and Mary his Mother, and Mother of the Church, may we be guided through this time of peril.

Preserve us in peace; protect the vulnerable; keep safe our health care workers and all who serve society, at home and abroad. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
