The Year of St. Joseph
This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the proclamation of St. Joseph as the Patron of the Universal Church. For this reason, Pope Francis has declared a year of St. Joseph!
In his new Apostolic Letter, the Holy Father describes that St. Joseph loved with a "Father's heart." We know that, as a father, St. Joseph journeyed with his family through difficult circumstances. Even through fear and chaos he never left their side.
St. Joseph journeyed with his earthly family and now we want to give you the opportunity for him to journey with yours!
The Image: New Jerusalem Studios donated a beautiful image of St. Joseph to our parish in honor of the Year of St. Joseph. The image is the fruit of much prayer and work, and we are beyond grateful.
