25th Anniversary of PUSJ

Grass Lake – The Pious Union of St. Joseph was born from the love of St. Louis Guanella for the suffering and dying. He understood that the last hours of people’s lives were the most important for every human being. The Pious Union of St. Joseph was officially approved by Pope St. Pius X, on February 17, 1913, and extended to the whole world on February 12, 1914. The Michigan branch of the Pious Union of St. Joseph was approved by the Bishop of Lansing, MI, on August 3, 1987. The Pious Union marked this anniversary with a special Mass presided by the Most Rev. Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing, on Sunday, December 1, 2012, at 11:30am. The Mass was followed by a lunch at the St. Louis Center. The members of the Pious Union who participated in this event offered their prayers to St. Joseph for an increase of faith and membership.
