Prayer to St. Joseph

recited during Wednesday morning mass

​​​​​​​Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil, 

Prayer to St. Michael

recited during morning mass except for Wednesday

​​​​​​​St. Michael the Archangel,
 defend us in battle.
Be our defence against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
And do thou,
O Prince of Heavenly Host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
that prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls,


Prayer For Vocations

recited during  mass on Saturday & Sunday

God our Father, we turn to you in this time of great need.  We trust in your loving kindness and ask you to hear the prayers we offer for your Church.

Through your grace, we seek men to generously offer their lives to you in the vocation of priesthood.  We seek both men and women who may offer their lives to you in the vocation of religious life.

Bless and guide those who are discerning your call to holiness and service.  Give them courage, steadfast love and a sprit of charity as they seek to respond faithfully to the call to priesthood and religious life.

We offer this prayer for the Diocese of Orlando and for the whole Church in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who is Lord, forever and ever.
