Good St. Joseph, pray for us.
Oh, how often I find myself offering up that prayer and I know many other people who do as well and with good reason. St. Joseph is the ideal saint to turn to when we need that special feeling of reassurance of knowing everything will be okay when we face struggles in life. After all, our fathers serve as our first protector and guardian in life, who better to continue in that role than St. Joseph?
Here at Holy Family Residence, we celebrated St. Joseph and his role as protector of the Little Sisters’ congregation with a beautiful Mass in our chapel on his feast day, March 19. The Most Rev. James C. Timlin, D.D., bishop emeritus of the Diocese of Scranton, and numerous diocesan priests concelebrated the 11 a.m. Mass for us.
Following the Mass, Bishop Timlin and the priests served the Residents a delicious lunch consisting of prime rib, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and cake. Following lunch, the bishop greeted each Resident individually and provided them with a St. Joseph prayer card to commemorate the day.
Once the Residents finished lunch, the bishop, priests, and members of our Association Jeanne Jugan enjoyed lunch and conversation in our café.
Until next time,
