Year of St. Joseph









On the 150th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church

Our Holy Father Pope Francis declared a Holy Year of St. Joseph to be celebrated world-wide from December 8, 2020 through December 8, 2021. All are encouraged to draw close to St. Joseph in prayer this year. Below are a few resources to aid in the celebration of this great year of grace.

Prayer to St. 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.
