Our new tapestry of Saint Joseph arrived! I hope you agree that it looks beautiful! It was donated by an anonymous parishioner. Pope Francis dedicated the year 2021 to Saint Joseph. The foster father of Jesus does not always get much attention, but if you had the opportunity to reflect on his role
during the past year, you would realize how instrumental he is in our faith. Men, especially today can learn a lot from Saint Joseph. Our Knights of Columbus Council consecrated themselves to
Saint Joseph, and I was honored to make the consecration, as well. Our new tapestry of Saint Joseph is hung where the statue of Our Lady used to stand. She now stands in our Adoration Chapel.
The tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe now hangs where the statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus stood. Her mantle stands next to her. Our Blessed Mother, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is patroness of the Americas (North, Central, and South) and is the patroness of our own Diocese of Colorado Springs. The Apostolate of the Mantle and Rosary are offered every Monday morning at 7:30 AM and every Sunday afternoon at 1:00 PM right in front of her. The statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus now stands in the Adoration Chapel.
My vision is to always keep Jesus at the center of our lives (ambo, altar & tabernacle).
With Our Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph at His side and ours, I pray that we always be a Holy Family!
