"God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend,
of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2: 9 - 11)

Year of St. Joseph
On December 8, 2020 Pope Francis invited the Church to celebrate a year dedicated to St. Joseph,
the foster father of Jesus and husband of Mary. Attached to such celebrations are special indulgences.
The decree granting the indulgence is posted below, and lists several things the faithful can do in
observance of this year of grace dedicated to St. Joseph.
Prayer for Year of St. Joseph
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
