The consecration to the Holy Family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, is a particular way of commitment to serve your parish and all your parishioners. Those parishioners that have asked you to help them in their consecration to the Holy Family don’t come to you with the intention of founding a new committee in your parish or to add more meetings to your agenda.
Parishioners consecrated to the Holy Family might be lectors, acolytes, ushers, extraordinary ministers of the Holy Eucharist, members of the Altar and Rosary Society, Guadalupanas, members of the prayer group, catechists, or just people longing to deepen in their family faith and traditions.
However, we share in the same spirituality: the spirituality of the Holy Family of Nazareth, Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We have come to see the house of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, as the school, the temple and the workshop where we grow together as brothers and sisters in Christ, children of God, members of the Church.
These parishioners that are requesting to be consecrated to the Family of Nazareth by the Feast of the Holy Family know that their consecration to Jesus, Mary and Joseph, is meant to pray for you and to help you and all their brothers and sisters to become what we already are in God’s heart: a family.
