Dear St. Joseph, whom we venerate with Mary and Jesus as the Holy Family, keep our family well and holy as we strive to imitate you here on earth.
Assist us to fulfill our solemn parental duties of safeguarding and nurturing humanly and spiritually the cherished children God has given us.
Keep them safe from physical and moral harm and inspire them to make wise choices in life that reflect their ongoing love of the Lord and eagerness to serve Him faithfully through life.
Extend your protective hand over all the members of the church as their beloved patron and protector. We ask this in Jesus' name under Mary's loving gaze.
