Important Notice from Bishop Larry Silva: 

Over two years ago, Pope Francis decreed that the words “with blessed Joseph, her Spouse” should be inserted into Eucharistic Prayers II immediately after the words “with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God,”; and in Eucharistic Prayer III after the words “with the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.”  I have celebrated Mass in many parishes throughout the diocese, and I have observed that the majority have still not made this addition.  Could everyone please give dear St. Joseph a gift for his Solemnity this Saturday, March 19, by adding those words in those two places by then?  Thank you for your cooperation!
