A Day with St. Joseph
Do you know Saint Joseph—really know him?
Celebrate this “Year of St. Joseph” by spending the day at St. Raphaela’s!
Get to know Saint Joseph, the foster father of Jesus and spouse of the Virgin Mary, on a human level, as well as from the perspective of Pope Francis’ apostolic letter, Patris Corde.
On December 8, 2020, Pope Francis published an "Apostolic Letter" called Patris Corde ("With a Father's Heart"), in which he proclaimed a "Year of Saint Joseph." The letter was published on the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as "Patron of the Universal Church. Pope Francis surprised the world by declaring that the celebration would begin that very day, Dec. 8, 2020, and continue until Dec. 8, 2021. Near the end of Patris Corde, Pope Francis states the purpose of his writing:
"The aim of this Apostolic Letter is to increase our love for this great saint, to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and his zeal."
