St. Jude Catholic Parish - South Bend, Indiana

True Reformers
This Father’s Day weekend watch the film Joseph of Nazareth together as a family! Joseph of Nazareth is the first feature film ever on the story of St. Joseph, who was a carpenter, the husband of Mary, and the foster father of Jesus Christ.

Scripture tells us that St. Joseph was a "just man" and that God gave him the most daunting task ever asked of a man–to be the husband of the woman who would give birth to the Messiah and the father and protector of this Holy Family. He would be the man closest to Christ.

Heavenly Father, You entrusted Your Son Jesus, the Child of Mary, to the care of Joseph, an earthly Father.
Bless all fathers as they care for their families.
Give them strength and wisdom, tenderness and patience;
support them in the work they have to do,
protecting those who look to them,
as we look to You for love and salvation,
through Jesus Christ our rock and defender,
in union with the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
St. Joseph, pray for all our fathers. Amen.
