Knights of Columbus film, St. Joseph: Our Spiritual Father – now available online at no cost to help maintain and nurture devotions to St. Joseph. A Providential renewal has come upon the Church with respect to understanding and praying to St. Joseph. To help the faithful in continuing their devotion to St. Joseph, the Knights of Columbus is offering its newest film, St. Joseph: Our Spiritual Father, for all to watch – at no cost. Since its launch, the film has received raving reviews and is rich in inspiring testimonials, including these powerful words from Most Rev. James Wall, Bishop of Gallup, New Mexico, “If you have a devotion to St. Joseph, strengthen that devotion. If you don’t, you should have one,” and these from Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly, “The example of St. Joseph teaches us that we really find ourselves when we live for others.” Visit www.kofc.org/stjoseph to watch the film or learn more.
