Pope Francis proclaims Year of St Joseph

As today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception the Holy Father Francis issued an Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (With a Father’s Heart) recalling the 150th anniversary of the declaration of St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.  To commemorate this anniversary Pope Francis has dedicated 8th December 2020 – 8th December 2021 as the Year of St. Joseph.

As more information becomes available we establish a dedicated section of the diocesan website.  For now, you can read more about the announcement below:
