Family and Individual Consecration Prayer to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph:
At the Holy Masses the weekend of December 28/29, we will offer a prayer of Consecration to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. To consecrate yourself and especially your family to the Holy Family is to intentionally choose to deepen one’s love and service to God, one’s family and the Church. Families are called to be a domestic church, to deliberately foster prayer and grow in the divine virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity (Love). Each family member has a role to play, just like in the Holy Family.
To be consecrated means to be set aside for God's holy service and His purposes. Catholics were consecrated at Baptism and continue to spiritually grow through the Sacraments, Worship of God in Holy Mass and a life of prayer. Active participation leads to generous service to God and His Divine Plan to offer salvation through His Church. There will be prayer cards for this consecration distributed in the pews before the public consecration on December 28/29. To prepare for this weekend, we recommend families and individuals recommit their hearts to God by praying together, especially through the Holy Rosary, morning prayer, and prayer before meals and before bedtime. Another way to prepare is through pen-ance, such as by abstaining from meat or something else on all Fridays, as the Church asks of us, except when a Solemnity is on Friday. More holy practices include going to Confession as a family and praying in Adoration together. We hope that this consecration will foster devotion to family prayer and lead us to more fervently practice our Catholic Faith and share our Faith with others.
Thank you to the St Pio Knights of Columbus for sponsoring this family consecration and the service that they do throughout the year. We thank all of our families who are asking God to help them strive for greater love and service to God, one another, his Catholic Church and those in need.
God bless you! Fr. Kasel

Saint Quote for a New Year Resolution:
“Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, or even at their difficulty, as at the love with which we do them”
St. Therese of Lisieux
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Robert McCutcheon
(a longtime parishioner), who passed away Dec. 21. ‘Eternal rest
grant unto him, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon him. May
he rest in peace. Amen. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful
departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.’
