CONSECRATION TO ST JOSEPH
"Devotion to St. Joseph is one of the choicest graces that God can give to a soul,
for it is tantamount to revealing the entire treasury of our Lord’s graces.”
“When God wishes to raise a soul to greater heights, he unites it to St. Joseph
by giving it a strong love for the good saint.” -St. Peter Julian Eymard
In recent centuries, the Church has recognised the unique and important role of St. Joseph in
salvation history. God chose St. Joseph to be the foster-father of Jesus His Divine Son, and
entrusted to him the care of His masterpiece, the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
Jesus and Mary entrusted themselves entirely to the care and protection of St. Joseph as the
head of the Holy Family. We too can entrust ourselves completely to St. Joseph, our spiritual
In 2021, which was proclaimed as the year of St. Joseph for the Universal Church , countless individuals, families and parishes all over the world made the Consecration to St. Joseph, a spiritual programme introduced by Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC. The programme consists of 33 days of readings and prayers leading up to a prayer of consecration recited on a feast day connected to St. Joseph. Below is a Consecration Chart with suggested dates to begin the spiritual programme.
To make a Consecration to St. Joseph is to make a formal act of filial entrustment acknowledging St. Joseph as our spiritual father whom we desire to be close to and resemble in virtue and holiness.
If you have already consecrated yourself to Our Lady, you can also be consecrated to St. Joseph. Total consecration to Mary is not
diminished by total consecration to St. Joseph. We need both a spiritual father and mother to aid us in our spiritual growth. Everything
given to Jesus and Mary can also be given to St. Joseph.
Make the Consecration more memorable by doing it as a family, group or as a parish. Get to know the wonders of our spiritual father during this season of Lent.
