Year of St. Joseph (Dec 8 2020 -2021)
On Dec. 8th, 2020, Pope Francis announced that, in honor of the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph being declare patron of the universal church, we would dedicate the following year to St. Joseph. This means that we emphasize a special piety to the life of St. Joseph and by imitating his life we can receive special indulgences. More information on this can be read here.
