Feast of Saint Joseph

This Friday, March 19, 2021, we wish you a very happy Feast of Saint Joseph!

Blessed Basil Moreau gave Saint Joseph as patron to the Brothers of Holy Cross.

The Shrine is celebrating this Feast with to Masses to Saint Joseph. A novena has been said from March 10 to 18 in preparation of his Feast Day.

Pope Francis, with the publication of « Patris corde » (« With a father’s heart »), proclaimed a « Year of Saint Joseph » (December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021).

He also declared later a Year « Amoris Laetitia Family », opening Friday March 19, 2021, which will end on June 26, 2022, during the World Meeting of Families in Rome.

Saint Joseph, pray for us!


« 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. »

Pope Francis
