Weekly hymn: 770 – What A Friend We Have in Jesus
Day 19: Third Sunday in Lent, Feast of St Joseph, guardian of Jesus, March 19, Oculi
O Lord, when you sent your Son into the world as an infant child, you entrusted him to Joseph as a caretaker and guardian. You have now entrusted the mission and ministry of Catalina Lutheran Church to us, your people. Our eyes are turned to You, for it is only through Your mercy that we are able to carry out this mission and ministry. We pray that you would grant us strength, courage, patience and wisdom, to guard and serve your church as Joseph guarded and served the infant Jesus and watched over him as he grew in strength and wisdom. Grant that your will be done for us and for the church at large. Amen.
