Prayer seeking the intercession of St. Joseph, Patron Saint of Loras College:

To you, O blessed Joseph, we have recourse, and with hearts filled with confidence, earnestly ask you to take us under your protection. We humbly pray that you will look with gracious eye upon that inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased with His blood and support our need by your power and strength. Defend, most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen offspring of Jesus Christ. Shield us under your patronage that, imitating your example, and strengthened by your help, we may live a holy life, die a happy death and attain to everlasting happiness in Heaven. Amen.

In addition to the book of prayers in Christ the King Loras College has created an email prayer chain. Share yours with us, by answering the questions below and hit submit. Thanks for your interest and prayers.
