Year of St Joseph
Pope Francis has declared a year dedicated to St Joseph, from 8 December 2020 to 8 December 2021. He says: “Each of us can discover in Joseph – the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble” (Patris Corde – Pope Francis).
You find the Novena of St Joseph here below. you can download it and pray it with your family.
There are many special indulgences attached to this Year of St Joseph, especially on the 19th March, when we will celebrate his Feast.
