Feast of St. Joseph

GATHERING SONG                                                                            SING OF JOSEPH

Sing of Joseph, great protector
Of Jesus Christ, our risen Lord.
O holy man of peace and justice,
We sing to you with one accord.
Honoring you for virtues and values
Strong and bold and ever true,
For faith which teaches and amazes
Each time the story is heard anew.


God of Great Love,
your Son, Jesus, was nurtured by St. Joseph.

May we look to Joseph as our model of
justice, gentleness, and humility.

May we, with Joseph,
nurture the life of Christ in our lives
and in the lives of others

uniting all people and all creation
with God and with one another.

May Joseph’s life inspire us to be a
hopeful, healing presence within our world.

SENDING SONG                                               GOD OF MARY, GOD OF JOSEPH

God of Mary, God of Joseph,
May our living be in you.
In this world of hope and promise,
May we be transformed anew.
As disciples of Christ Jesus,
strengthen us
in mission-ways.
Now with Joseph as our Father,
We make known our prayer today.
