Feast of St. Joseph at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Seminary



St. Joseph


A resistance group has an idea they would like to share with others.  Please share this with the faithful in your group and those who may not have a group.


With the Feast of St. Joseph coming up we are aiming to fill a table in Kentucky, by March 19th, for the seminarians to help themselves to any needed items.  The items can be purchased and mailed to Kentucky for them.


A short list of common items for the seminarians is included here for anyone who would like to help make sure the items are in good supply for the Priests and seminarians who are at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Seminary.  Of course these things will be needed on a regular basis, so at any time they can be mailed and they will be put to good use.


Besides the Priests, there are 9 seminarians and a Brother, so don’t worry about duplicating.  The more the better.

“Some saints are privileged to extend to us their patronage with particular efficacy in certain needs, but not in others; but our holy patron St. Joseph has the power to assist us in all cases, in every necessity, in every undertaking.”

(St. Thomas Aquinas)
