Prayer to Saint Joseph for the Financial Stability of the Seminary

Dear Saint Joseph,

whom God himself appointed

as Head and provider of his earthly family,

we beg for your intercession

that being the patron of this seminary,

you may also be our chief benefactor

in all spiritual as well as material needs.

Obtain for us from God

a steady flow of priestly vocations

and adequate means to nurture them.

As a diligent provider and wise administrator,

you sheltered and raised Jesus

in a simple but stable home,

pray for us always so that our seminary may be sustained

in her financial and material needs

by the goodness and generosity of its benefactors

and the prudent care of its administrators,

who likewise shelter and raise Christ’s ministers today.

Help seminarians as well

to use the resources of the seminary,

wisely, responsibly and gratefully.

Heeding the voice of the Scriptures, which tells us


we turn to your in our need.

Listen to this prayer we raise to your with trust

and graciously commend it to Christ, our Lord. Amen.
