In the Prayers of the Faithful, the members of St. Joseph’s community respond to the Word of God and to their baptismal commitment to the Christian way of life.  Prayers are offered for the Church, for those who govern, for those weighed down by various needs, for all humanity and for the salvation of the world.  These are the prayers of our community.

Prayers of the Faithful are included in each weekend Eucharistic celebration and also for particular celebrations, such as confirmations, marriages or funerals.

“In formulating the Prayers of the Faithful, one can truly enter into the spirit of our faith by contemplating the needs of the Church, the community, the afflicted, the poor and the numerous challenges and needs facing our world today.”
