Year of St. Joseph

150 years ago, Pope Pius IX in his decree Quemadmodum named St. Joseph Patron of the Universal Church.  To commemorate this 150th anniversary, Pope Francis in his Patris Corde (with a father's heart) declared December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021 the Year of St Joseph.

January's theme is Joseph, Most Vallian Protector of the Church: St. Joseph was entrusted with protecting the entire Church - the Holy Family (the Church), Mary (the image of the Church), the Holy Spirit (the soul of the Church) and Jesus Christ (the Church's head.) By his obedience and his sacrifice he valiantly defended them.

That Man is You

That Man Is You resumes January 6th.  

That Man is You's new season "All Things New" started Wednesday, September 16th. This is a completely new series - 13 fall sessions presented by dynamic Catholic speakers. Each session starts with breakfast at 6:00 a.m. followed by a 30-minute video and small group discussions. You will be out by 7:30 a.m. to start your day. TMIY is attended by local parishes in and outside the city - all men are welcome. There is no homework. Do something for yourself at the beginning of your day. Tables are enlarged for social distancing. Please email Deacon John Bredemeier if you plan to attend at [email protected] or text/call 701.314.0207. This year's sessions will be held at St. Mary's Church, 216 Belmont Road, Grand Forks.

Spiritual Communion Prayer with Our Lord anywhere:

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
