Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby. As an expression of that love, the Church of Saint Joseph will start its 28th Annual Spiritual Adoption Prayer Novena. From the Annunciation, March 25th to Christmas, December 25th. Our parish invites you to "spiritually adopt" a child who is newly conceived this month, and to pray daily for that baby for the next 9 months. Not all newly conceived babies are allowed to be born. In fact, more than 4,000 babies lose their lives to abortion each day. It is these babies that you are being asked to "spiritually adopt". 

40 DAYS FOR LIFE - Fridays, One hour Prayer Vigils 11 am to noon at Planned Parenthood 540 Fulton Avenue in Hempstead. 

During the 40 days of Lent, St. Joseph parishioners will gather in prayer beginning March 8th and continuing on March 15th, 22nd, 29th and April 5th and 12th.
