What's Happening


Feast of St. Joseph

posted Mar 17, 2019, 1:52 PM by LMCNC WebTeam   [ updated Mar 17, 2019, 2:07 PM ]


Feast of St. Joseph is celebrated traditionally on March 19th.
The Bible pays Joseph the highest compliment: he was a “just” man. By saying Joseph was “just,” the Bible means that he was one who was completely open to all that God wanted to do for Him. He became holy by opening himself totally to God. 

We pray for all families on this feast day.
Since Joseph does not appear in Jesus’ public life, at his death, or resurrection, many historians believe Joseph probably had died before Jesus entered public ministry. Joseph is the patron of the dying because, assuming he died before Jesus’ public life, he died with Jesus and Mary close to him, the way we all would like to leave this earth.

Novena Prayer to St. Joseph
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God. I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls – Pray for me.

Lenten Season Begins

posted Mar 3, 2019, 6:54 PM by LMCNC WebTeam   [ updated Mar 17, 2019, 2:09 PM ]



Let us enter into the spirit of the Lenten Season.
We begin Lent by accepting the "Cross".
The sign of the cross on our forehead reminds us that we are mortals
But when we accept the crosses that come on our way, with Jesus, we gain strength to overcome temptations and evil and death.
We accept the crosses that come on our way.
We die to the world to rise with Jesus, the "Resurrection" John 11:25

You are invited to participate in the Penitential Rite and Holy Qurbana on the First Monday of Lent, this year on March 4th 2019, at 7 pm.
The sign of the cross on our forehead is a blunt statement to the world that we are with Christ, that we have closed the gate into our mind and spirit with the "Cross of Jesus"
