Pope Francis has declared a Year of St. Joseph, which began on December 8, 2020, and will continue until December 8, 2021.  The celebration also marks the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of St. Joseph as patron of the universal church.  The pope has said that “St. Joseph teaches us that amid the tempests of life, we must never be afraid to let the Lord steer our course.”  

Here is a link to prayer and scripture texts on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website.

We can always mediate on St. Joseph’s faithful witness and use these prayers at any time, especially for the rest of this Year of St. Joseph.

St. Joseph, pray for us.
