Celebrating the Year of St Joseph (8 December 2020 – 8 December 2021)
Join us in Celebration!
Pope Francis in his Apostolic Letter, Patris Corde, called the Church to set aside 2021 as a year to focus our attention on St Joseph as patron of the Universal Church.
Saint Mary MacKillop and Fr Julian Tenison Woods, the co-founders of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the Sacred Heart, chose St Joseph to be patron of the Congregation and so we rejoice in this opportunity to pray with and for the people of God with St Joseph.
- 19 March the feast of St Joseph
- 1 May the feast of St Joseph the Worker;
- 8 August the feast of St Mary MacKillop and;
- 7 October the anniversary of the death of Fr Julian Tenison Woods.
