Honoring our Mother in the month of May

The month of May is dedicated to Mother Mary. As our mother, she is always protecting us and bringing us closer to Jesus, our Savior. We are blessed to have a spiritual mother like Mary!

In gratitude we pray the rosary every morning in the Basilica at 7:30am (before Mass) except Sundays. Please join us and receive many blessings for our parish community. We are also encouraged to pray the rosary at home as a family, especially during the month of May. On Sunday May 18, after the 5pm Mass at St. Joseph, all are invited to take part in the Marian procession around the block, praying the rosary together.  Mother Mary, pray for us!
For single, Catholic, young adult women:
