Consecration to St. Joseph

In order to celebrate this year, The Corpus Christi Evangelization Ministry is inviting you to share in the Consecration to St. Joseph. It is our hope that this spiritual exercise can be fruitful for all of us.

The consecration to St. Joseph can be taken up on your own, or you may join us as a group. The group sessions will meet weekly on Mondays starting Feb 15th at 7:30 PM. We are planning to complete our consecration on the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker on March 19, 2021.

You will need the book: “Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of our Spiritual Father”, by Donald H. Calloway, MC. This book provides a 33-day retreat with short reflections each day that lead us to the point of being able to consecrate ourselves to St. Joseph. You can purchase the book from these vendors: Catholic Books Direct, EWTN, Catholic Supply, Amazon

Group Sessions will be held virtually on: (Download Schedule)

February 15 | February 22 | March 1 | March 8 | March 15 | March 19
