With the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” or With a Father’s Heart, Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a Year of St. Joseph from December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021 marking the occasion on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. At Sacred Heart we have placed a banner with the “Year of St. Joseph” and laid red roses on the St. Joseph altar. Pope Francis describes St. Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadow. God bless all our Fathers especially as we will be celebrating Fathers Day on June 20.
