Everyone is welcome, children too! Please bring free to bring a friend! No prior experience required, just a desire to sit with the Lord, together in silence!

Prayer to Saint Joseph to Know One’s Vocation
O grant me the grace to know the state of life that God in His providence has chosen for me. Since my happiness on earth, and perhaps even my final happiness in heaven, depends on this choice, let me not be deceived in making it.
Obtain for me the light to know God’s will, to carry it out faithfully, and to choose the vocation which will lead me to a happy eternity.
