Consecration to Jesus through Saint Joseph
As we look to the future of building our new church and developing the grounds here at St. John Paul II Church, we turn to Saint Joseph the Worker for his intercession and guidance that we may endeavor to build a spiritual community environment for all.
We began the 44-day Consecration to Jesus through St. Joseph on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, which was Friday March 19th. The devotion will end on the Feast Day of St. Joseph the Worker, May 1st.
St. Joseph the carpenter built a house for the Holy Family; and now we consecrate our efforts and plans to build out our community through his patronal care.
Please follow us daily on our youtube channel for daily videos during our Consecration to Jesus through St. Joseph.

LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE
We are hosting a special presentation by Darrell Green, formerly of the Washington Redskins, and one of the NFL's Top 100 Players of all-time! He is a tremendous presenter and will share his story of a faith guided life and how to be a great steward of your life, body, and family.
Live Your Best Life will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Given the past year and the pandemic, we think this will be a great opportunity to get out of the house and do something fun, inspiring, and enlightening.
Live Your Best Life will also highlight Frank Benischeck, founder of Totus Tuus Consulting and guest speaker on CBS, FOX, and NBC morning shows and featured speaker at Harvard Business School, Business Expert Forum. Given the many challenges facing retirees today, Frank will also share enlightening updates regarding concerns over major tax increases and what you might need to do about them. Have you recently moved to Florida? Frank will discuss why it is necessary to have your legal documents, such as wills or trusts, reviewed or created.
