St. Joseph the Worker Shrine

We who minister at the Shrine are committed to work collaboratively with one another and with you. Our aim is to provide a place of prayer, conscious reflection, and social action that is hospitable to and calls forth the gifts of all who come to the Shrine. We do this in the spirit of Jesus Christ and of Saint Eugene de Mazenod, founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

Our mission is based on Matthew 11:28:

Come to me all you who labor and are overburdened, and I will give you rest.”

Please join us this Saturday, October 23, immediately following the 
4:00 PM Mass (weather permitting) for a procession in honor of
St. Joseph the Worker and Fr. Terry O’Connell’s Month’s Mind Mass.

The procession will return to the Shine where we will recite
the Litany of St. Joseph and St. Joseph’s Prayer. All are welcome!

Refurbishing Damaged Pews – update

We have begun the work of lightly sanding-down and refinishing the pews that were coated with a slight film because we sanitized them daily during the COVID emergency.  Sections of pews will be cordoned-off and will be refinished in the days and weeks ahead.  Please observe the Caution Tapes and avoid using those pews that are being refinished.

          Thank you for your understanding and patience as this restoration work gets underway.
