Consecration to St. Joseph

Consecration to St. Joseph

On Wednesday, March 18, Archbishop Listecki consecrated the entire Archdiocese of Milwaukee to the paternal care and protection of St. Joseph. In the Gospels, St. Joseph is depicted as silent, faithful, and peaceful, even in the face of grave danger and suffering. For those reasons, St. Joseph provides a compelling witness and model for how we can maintain communion with God in these times. We encourage you to grow closer to St. Joseph and make this consecration personal in one of the following ways. 

While it is appropriate to consecrate oneself on any day of the year, people often choose to do on a feast day of St. Joseph. We encourage you to prepare for and consecrate yourself to St. Joseph on May 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.
