Feast of St Joseph Stations of the Cross, Saturday 12 March 2022, 10:30am, St Joseph’s College.
All are welcome for School Rally, Gospel reading, Prayers to St Joseph and (open-air) Stations of the Cross at St Joseph’s Church (ends at about 12 noon). Please meet at main entrance /parking lot, wear face masks at all times during the prayer session. We will observe distancing requirements.
In view of the worsening Covid situation, closure of all Churches in HK and the possibility of a lockdown sometime soon, the Sons of St Joseph’s has decided to bring forward our celebration of the Feast of St Joseph (always 19 March) (and our 10th Anniversary in thanksgiving to God) to prepare ourselves during this Lenten period.
We thank God our Heavenly Father for making St Joseph patron of families and patron of our college.
“Joseph, son of David,
do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home.
For it is through the Holy Spirit
that this child has been conceived in her.
She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus,
because he will save his people from their sins.”
When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him
and took his wife into his home. (Matthew 1:16-24)
St Joseph, Pillar of families and hope of the sick, pray for us, and pray for
peace in Ukraine and an end to the Coronavirus pandemic:
for the repentance of sinners
for Divine Mercy for deliverance of the Ukrainian people from the Russian invasion and of the world from the Coronavirus pandemic (Delta, Omicron and all variants)
for all in the medical and health services
and for St Joseph’s College and all LaSallian schools in Hong Kong, and all Supervisors, Principals, teachers/staff (present and former), Josephians and their families and all in the LaSallian family.
If you cannot make this, we would invite you to daily 3-minute prayers for peace in Ukraine and an end to the Coronavirus pandemic, and same intentions above
*Sign of the Cross, then pray
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…
and the Fatima Prayer
“O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy. Amen.”
and (short prayer) On fighting Coronavirus pandemic
(Sign of the Cross to end)
Thanks for your time and prayers. God bless and stay safe.
Yours in Christ,
Sons of St Joseph’s
