From December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021, Pope Francis has proclaimed a "Year of St. Joseph." In his Apostolic Letter "Patris Corde," Pope Francis writes about the importance of "ordinary" people during the COVID-19 pandemic. Though they don't all grab the headlines or adoration of the world, they resemble St. Joseph, "the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence," who nonetheless played "an incomparable role in the history of salvation."

We will continually be updating this page with resources, prayers, and more honoring our heritage to St. Joseph all year long.

St. Joseph – the patron saint of the Catholic Church, workers, immigrants, a happy death, and our sisters – pray for us!
