Mary, Mother of God
The Mother of God is our highest patroness. Our province is entrusted to her care, under her title of the Immaculate Conception.
Beneath Thy Protection
We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God;
despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin.
We honor the foster father of Jesus, St. Joseph, who is also the patron of the universal Church.
Prayer to St. Joseph
O Glorious Joseph, the most pure spouse of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, remember us, protect us, keep us in your care, and help us grow in holiness. Dearest Caregiver of the Most Holy Child Jesus, provide for all of our spiritual and material needs, and take under your special and loving consideration this particular need of ours which we now present to you (name your petitions). May the outcome of your powerful intercession benefit our souls and thus give glory to God.
We hold in great esteem the glorious founder of our Order, St. Dominic. Under his patronage, we pray to be fervent Preachers of the Word of God to the world in need, for the glory of God and for the salvation of souls.
St. Dominic, pray for us.
St. Catherine of Siena
We hail St. Catherine as our spiritual mother. We pray for her intercession to help us remain zealous for the salvation of souls.
“If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire!”
Holy Mother, St. Catherine, pray for us.
