“Be faithful in small things, because it is in them that your strength lies.”

"The family that prays together, stays together, and if they stay together, they will love one another as God has loved each one of them. And works of love are always works of peace.”

- Mother Teresa

Join us on the feast day of St. Joseph as we invoke the patronage of St. Joseph for our ever-growing family. Pope Francis in his Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” declared 2021 the year of Saint Joseph. As we continue to be socially distanced, we pray for the protection of our family and for all those helping hands for who we are grateful.

Let us share in the hope we have for one another as we continue to fill Our Savior Parish with candles lit for our intentions for our family, loved ones, and humanity. May we continue to ask for the intercession of St. Joseph, so that like St. Joseph we continue to seek the guidance of our Father as we watch over our family.

Join us online on Friday, March 19 at 9:00 a.m. on Facebook Live as Fr. Richard Sunwoo lights a votive candle inside Our Savior Parish to pray in solidarity with you and your family. The beautiful flame will burn for five days and represents our prayers of love, hope, and peace.

If you would like to participate, please complete the online form below and plan to watch the candle lighting on this page or on Facebook. Every dollar donated from the candle blessing goes to support Catholic life on the campus of USC.

If you would like to mail in your offering, please contact us online via email and we can mail you a form. Please note the deadline to submit your intention for this candle blessing is midnight on Sunday, March 14th. If you have any questions or concerns while making your donation online, please also feel free to contact us.

Blessed Joseph, we pray for your intercession as a Father, to guide us in the path of life. Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen.
