The Shrine of St. Joseph has always been a self-sustaining ministry of the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity. Enhanced by the outstanding generosity of benefactors who journey here, those who remember their loved ones through Masses or place petitions before candles, those who frequent our Gift & Book Shop, and the stewardship of our worshipping communities who gratefully acknowledge the pastoral refuge granted to them, the Shrine has been able to operate and maintain these holy grounds while also providing financial assistance to our ministries for the poor, infirmed and abandoned in other parts of the United States and South America.
Loyalty to the Shrine of St. Joseph runs deep. Many devotees of the Shrine, our patron saint, St. Joseph, and the power of the prayer ministry of our resident religious, have generously contributed to the Shrine and enabled us to respond to those who are in need. In addition to the annual fund, they have generously remembered their loved ones with engraved commemorative bricks and donations to the upkeep of the Tower of Remembrance. Please contact Fr. Dennis Berry, S.T. directly (Shrine office 908-647-0208) about major contributions of corporate stock and will remembrances.
The religious and lay stewards of these holy grounds are grateful for this ongoing support and would appreciate further participation to retain our sacred ministries.
