The year of Saint Joseph

8th December 2020 to 8th December 2021

Each of us can discover in Joseph – the man who
goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden
presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in
times of trouble.

Saint Joseph reminds us that
those who appear hidden or in the shadows can
play an incomparable role in the history of

A word of recognition and of gratitude
is due to them all.
(Pope Francis)

“With a Father’s Heart” art project:

 We have planned a creative art project linked to the Year of Saint Joseph. Pope Francis had declared this year the Year of Joseph, in a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows. Therefore, this year we will be celebrating the “Year of St Joseph” (150 years since Saint Joseph was made Patron of the Universal Church).

We would like everyone in our school community to contribute; each child and adult will draw, paint or make an individual heart.

We will put all 600+ hearts together into one whole artwork.

Some of our hearts can already be seen below:
