Year of St. 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.

The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” which began December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and extends to the same feast in 2021.

From the Diocese: An Advent microsite, just for you!

The Diocese of Montreal has prepared a special microsite dedicated to Waiting in Joyful Hope and Welcoming Hope and Joy to help you and your families prepare for Advent and Christmas from your own home and at your own pace.

These playlists contain suggestions of things to do, watching, listening and praying as we prepare our hearts for God’s coming as a little child and are divided into 4 categories: 
– children/families,
– teens,
– young adults and
