At this critical point in world history, with secular attacks on patriarchy, fatherhood, masculinity and the family, we need St. Joseph more than ever. St. Joseph, Protector of the Church, was given a key role especially for these times to intervene on behalf of the Church Militant. For all struggles against the devil, the flesh and the world, St. Joseph is the "go to” saint to whom we, as faithful Catholics, need a stronger devotion. We are proud sponsors of Deacon Steve Greco and the entire team at Spirit Filled Hearts Ministry for this Saint Joseph Summit. Information: www.bhhscalifornia.com.
