transp koc logoThe Knights of Columbus (KOC) of St. Joseph (#9456) have introduced a new program called "The Holy Family"

We are inviting parishioners of any household to consecrate themselves to the Holy Family. Each week the parishioner will take the sanctuary of the Holy Family into their homes for one week of daily prayer. At the end of your week, you will bring back the sanctuary to the church for the next family.

chaliceThe Chalice for Vocations ministry was developed to promote fervent and devotional prayer for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life. These specific intentions are raised as the chalice travels within the parish community.

A prayer guide is provided and geared for readers that are young or old.  Spontaneous and personal prayers for vocations are always acceptable and welcome also. Please incorporate prayers for an increase in vocations within your prayer life.

If you would like to receive the Chalice for Vocations for a week, please contact the parish office at 719-544-1886. Thank you. Be confident that your prayers are heard.

ukraineDear Parishioners,

As a Community of St. Joseph, we are devastated by the recent events in Ukraine. Let us join the world in prayer. We turn to God for guidance and direction, and prayer that you look over the people of Ukraine. Give them strength and courage during this difficult time. We pray to you, oh God, for peace and a resolution to this conflict.

We pray for all the people of the Ukraine and we ask Our Blessed Mother and St. Joseph and St. Michael for Intercessions!

A PRAYER FOR UKRAINE
From the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

O Prince of Peace,
We pray for the people of Ukraine this day.
May conflict cease and peace be restored.
May those in power soon find ways of peace.
God of peacemakers
Teach us the ways of peace.
Come and show us
how to beat our swords into plowshares,
tools of life instead of instruments of fear.
Strip us of all strategies of conquest,
Make our hearts alive
to your movement toward peace
with our dear neighbor.
We pray for the people of Ukraine this day.
Amen.

Dear Parishioners,

The Capuchin Poor Clare Nuns have given that quiet contemplative witness in Pueblo for the past 21 years. Bishop Arthur Tafoya brought the Sisters to Pueblo to be that light and powerhouse of prayer. They presently live in their Monastery off Clark Street across the street from Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel Church.

St. Joseph Parish has donated 1.75 acre to the sisters to build a new Monastery for them that will house 12 Sisters. We are asking for donors to help with the building of this new Monastery to fulfill their dream. The enclosed flyer shows the old Monastery and the plans for the new Monastery. I am asking for your generous support for our Capuchin Poor Clare Nuns Monastery Fund.

Please see the flyer below. May God Bless you for your generous donation.

Your brother in Christ

Father Joseph 

We are asking for donations to help the Poor Clare Sisters fulfill their dream.
