A Novena to St Joseph


On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception last year, Pope Francis inaugurated the Year of St Joseph, whose aim he said, is to increase our love for this great saint, to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and his zeal.

This year is the one hundred and fiftieth Anniversary of the proclamation of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, and we can look with great confidence to St Joseph as we try to live with the effects of the pandemic, seeking both his intercession and leadership.

A Novena to St Joseph in the nine weeks leading up to his Feast Day on 19th March, taking place on nine Saturdays at 5pm, via Zoom, starting on Saturday 16th January, and finishing on Saturday 13th March.

The intention of this Novena is the safety and Christian lives of our families.

Each Saturday we will have a short reflection on St Joseph (based on Fr Gildorf’s book, Go to Joseph), followed by the Litany of St Joseph and the Novena prayer. The Novena is led by Fr Richard Aladics, each session lasting around 12 to 15 minutes.
