CATHOLICS WORLDWIDE
CELEBRATE THE
YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH

Pope Francis has proclaimed a “Year of St. Joseph” which began Dec 8 and will end Dec 8, 2021.  With his Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), he reminds us of the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church and reminds us how Joseph is an example to us all of patience, of a quiet comforter, a person who listens to God’s will, and although not in the forefront, a paternal strength in the family.  As a parish, we will take the opportunity to celebrate and follow St. Joseph’s example as we daily strengthen our life of faith, as we seek to  understand and accept the will of God.  READ MORE

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Saint Joseph

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father and
guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy,
and courage, and
defend us from every evil.
Amen.

Pope Francis’ Patris Corde
(With a Father’s Heart)

Apostolic Letter on the
150th Anniversary of the
Proclamation of Saint Joseph
as the Patron of the Universal Church

Quote: … during these months of pandemic, when we experienced, amid the crisis, how “our lives are woven together and sustained by ordinary people, people often overlooked. People who do not appear in newspaper and magazine headlines, or on the latest television show, yet in these very days are surely shaping the decisive events of our history. Doctors, nurses, storekeepers and supermarket workers, cleaning personnel, caregivers, transport workers, men and women working to provide essential services and public safety, volunteers, priests, men and women religious, and so very many others.

  • To faithful who recite “any legitimately approved prayer or act of piety in honor of St. Joseph,” with an encouragement to do so on the March 19 and May 1 feasts of St. Joseph, the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the Byzantine celebration of St. Joseph’s Sunday, and on the 19th of every month and on every Wednesday, which has been dedicated to St. Joseph in the Latin rite
