Pious Union sign in IndiaThe Pious Union of St. Joseph, a confraternity of Prayer for the Sick, Suffering and dying was founded by St. Louis Guanella at St. Joseph’s Basilica in Rome in the year 1914. Pope Pius X approved the movement and became its first member.  St. Joseph is the universal patron of the dying and the Pious Union of St. Joseph works under his patronage. The Pious Union of St. Joseph is spread throughout the world in many nations and the prime motive of the movement is to pray for the good health of the sick, a good death for the suffering and dying and for the salvation of departed souls.

The Movement has a GOLDEN BOOK, in which all the names of the sick and suffering are written and the movement offers continuous prayer for them. There are regular masses, Adoration, Rosaries and group prayers organized in the Guanellian Communities in India.

  • Every Wednesday 6 to 7 pm Adoration to pray for the sick, suffering and dying.
  • Every First Friday, Holy Mass for the sick, suffering and dying.

If you would like to become a member of the Pious Union of St. Joseph, contact the nearest Guanellian Religious Community in India. Your name will be enrolled and members will pray for the beloved sick and suffering amongst your family, relatives and friends.

  1. Please pray for Dana who is driving to Boston, Mass. to have an abortion. Please pray that God will flood her soul with sufficient grace that her unborn baby’s life will be spared. She is the friend of a friend of ours. We do not know her or the father of her child. We have been asked to pray to save the baby’s life.
