No. 1 prayer app teams up with world’s premier lay Catholic men’s organization for new guided meditation

New Haven, Conn., June 13, 2024 — The Knights of Columbus announced today a novena — nine days of prayer — to St. Joseph, the Patron Saint of Fathers, Cornerstone of Families, and Guardian of the Universal Church, to coincide with Father’s Day. The novena is narrated by Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly and is available exclusively on the Hallow app. The novena will launch on Sunday, June 16, and conclude on Monday, June 24. It will then be permanently available on the Hallow app so the faithful may prayerfully reflect on St. Joseph and ask for his intercession in our lives throughout the year.

“On the day I was installed as Supreme Knight, I dedicated my leadership of the Knights of Columbus to St. Joseph. I turn to him every day, because his life embodied prayer, obedience and courage,” said Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly. “St. Joseph was a man of faith who listened carefully to the Lord, and never backed away from difficulty. He is often considered the silent, humble witness of the Bible. That’s why the Knights are excited to partner with Hallow to develop this novena, so even more people can build a prayerful devotion to St. Joseph.”

“The Knights of Columbus has been supporting families and nourishing the faith lives of millions for more than a century,” said Alessandro DiSanto, Hallow co-founder. “As a husband, father, and fellow Knight myself, collaborating with the Knights of Columbus on this novena to St. Joseph, the patron saint of families, is a tremendous privilege.”

The Knights of Columbus has also produced a documentary titled St. Joseph: Our Spiritual Father, as well as numerous resources on St. Joseph, all of which can be accessed here.
