Year of St Joseph
Pope Francis on Tuesday announced a
special year dedicated to St. Joseph starting from
8 December 2020 until 8 December 2021, on the
occasion of the 150th anniversary of the
proclamation of St. Joseph as the Patron of the
Universal Church, as well as the Solemnity of
the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady. The
Apostolic Penitentiary also issued a decree
granting special indulgences for the duration of
the special year to celebrate the anniversary and
“to perpetuate the entrustment of the whole Church to the powerful
patronage of the Custodian of Jesus.”

of the heavenly Family of Nazareth, comfort and relief from the serious
human and social tribulations that besiege the contemporary world
