The CBCP Episcopal Commission on Laity along with other groups devoted to St Joseph would like to invite everyone to join in a 33-day consecration to St Joseph.
Today, March 30, led by Bishop Broderick Pabillo, Chairman of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Laity, which is in charge of the Year of St Joseph, we begin a 33-day Consecration to St Joseph which will culminate on May 1, Feast of St Joseph the Worker.
What does it mean to be consecrated to St Joseph?
Through this consecration, you entrust yourself into St Joseph's paternal care so that he can help you acquire his virtues and become holy.
Total consecration to St. Joseph means you make a formal act of filial entrustment to your St Joseph so that he can take care of your spiritual well-being and lead you to God.
The person who consecrates himself to St. Joseph wants to be as close to St Joseph as a spiritual father in order to resemble him in virtue and holiness.
In line with this, the Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas along with other devoted organizations have prepared videos to guide you so that we can consecrate ourselves to St Joseph together.
To watch, head over to the Youtube page of Sangguniang Laiko.
They will be uploading these videos to help guide you in your consecration to St Joseph DAILY.
As today is the first, day, here is Day 1 of the 33-Day Consecration to St Joseph, with an introduction from Bishop Broderick Pabillo, Chairman of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on the Laity.

May the Lord bless you as you seek to be placed under the care of St Joseph and emulate his holy ways!
