We wish all the Mothers, Grandmothers, Godmothers and Spiritual Mothers in our
Saint Joseph Parish family a very happy Mother’s Day!
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so You watch over Your Church. Bless these women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers. Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect.
