Abiding Trust in the House of Joseph
2023 Saint Joseph Appeal
In a papal audience in Saint Peter’s Square on the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in 2009, Pope Benedict XVI reflected that, “throughout all of history, Joseph is the man who gives God the greatest display of trust.”
Happenings in the Church and the world today certainly call us to trust – not in our own abilities or earthly accomplishments, but in what our all-powerful and loving God makes possible. This placement of trust is not “one and done,” but a continuous act of faith that comes from perseverance and resiliency. We are blessed to witness it here, as our seminarians strive to model Saint Joseph in praying for and renewing trust in God as they discern a call to the holy priesthood.
The early days of the new calendar year find us well on our way to meeting our 2022-2023 fundraising goal of $1,860,250, with $1,315,000 raised to date. This tremendous milestone could not have been reached without [the great generosity of our benefactors. It is our hope that the 2023 Saint Joseph Appeal will move us even closer to our goal, providing much-needed funds for seminarian scholarships and formation programs.
