As you may know, Atlanta Habitat is still not allowing volunteers to assist with the home builds – but with your generous Ash Wednesday offering – we were able to sponsor a home for Angela Patrick this year.  Building by the Habitat team finally began last week.

FREE resources to help YOU form your faith!

In this four-part series, Dr. Ben Akers and Dr. Christopher O. Blum sit down to discuss St. Francis de Sales, his best known work The Introduction to the Devout Life, and the character of a Christian revealed through his life’s witness and writings. We hope you enjoy this new series on an incredible counter-reformation saint who truly is a gift of God to the universal Church and from whom we can learn much today.

Year of St. Joseph

Pope Francis has declared 2021 the Year of St. Joseph. In a world where we tend to look to sports stars, celebrities and rock stars as our idols, we have been handed a year dedicated to the man who was father to Jesus and a model of quiet faith to us all. Joseph has not one word in all of scripture, yet he models for us a posture of listening, and a model of protecting our families. May he help us all to realize that silence is a virtue, and self-sacrifice and compassion are the Christian way to help others.

Let us all join together to add this Prayer Year of St. Joseph Prayer to our daily prayer routine…

Holy Saint Joseph, guardian of Jesus Christ, husband of the Blessed Mother and patron of the Catholic Church, we pray to you for guidance this “Year of Saint Joseph” proclaimed by Pope Francis.

You have showed us by your loving ways, the value of work and the joys of fatherhood. By teaching God’s Son to do the will of His Father you have given us the path to do the same. By your example, you have encouraged us to accept others as they are, without exception.

To you, Saint Joseph, our Heavenly Father entrusted his only Son, Jesus Christ to your tender care and upbringing. In you, our Blessed Mother Mary placed her love and trust. Through your mentoring, Jesus Christ became man.

We praise you and ask of you to defend us and our loved ones from every evil and guide us with your grace and mercy.
Amen.
