Year of St. Joseph 2021

March 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Year of St. Joseph 2021
Pope Francis is well known
for his devotion to Joseph,
husband of Mary, foster
father of Jesus and Patron of the Universal
Church. He has
written a meditation on St. Joseph
called “With A
Father’s Heart”.
He wanted to “share
some personal
reflections on this
extraordinary figure
so close to our
human experience”.
St. Joseph lived his
life in the middle of a
challenging and
changing world. The only
real constant in his life was his trust in God who
was always true to his promise to be with us in
every moment.
Pope Francis announced a “Year of St. Joseph”
which will run until December 8th. Friday next,
19th March is the feast of St. Joseph. We have
placed the statue of St. Joseph in a prominent
place in St. Brendan’s. Prayer cards are available
for your personal reflection.
St. Joseph is a father who is beloved of Jesus and
Mary. He is a tender and loving father. He accepts
with trust that which he does not fully understand
knowing that God sees the bigger picture. St. Joseph, a man of faith, hope and love.
A Triduum of Prayer to St. Joseph – Thursday,
Friday and Saturday at 10.00 a.m. Mass with
Prayer to the Sleeping St. Joseph.
