The Consecration of St. Joseph Virtual Retreat

Sponsored by the Marian Servants of the Word Incarnate

This is the Year of Saint Joseph! This Consecration to Saint Joseph retreat will take you to greater spiritual heights. You can become “another Joseph” for Jesus and Mary. Learn of his paternal love for you and the power to increase the presence of God in your life.

Now is the time of Saint Joseph! Drawing upon the long tradition of devotion to Saint Joseph, Donald Calloway, MIC invites us to consecrate ourselves to the heroically pure and just Saint Joseph. We will read, pray and reflect using his book, “Consecration to Saint Joseph”. The quiet saint spoke volumes through his faithful, loving efforts to protect and provide for his Holy Family.

For more information and to register contact Carol Picone (914) 772-7383.

Each participant will purchase their own copy of the book – the cover featured on the right. Suggested sites to order the book: shopmercy.org and autom.com. You can contact the Shop Mercy customer with questions you may have at (800) 462-7425.
