In this 150th anniversary of the declaration by Blessed Pope Pius IX of St. Joseph as the Patron of the Universal Church, our Holy Father, Pope Francis pronounced 8 December 2020 - 8 December 2021 the ‘Year of St. Joseph.’
We’re very much looking forward to presenting a seminar on Saturday morning, October 23, from 9:00am - 1:00pm, at St. John the Apostle parish, on the Bible’s own presentation of St. Joseph, the patron of the Holy Family and of the universal Church. The format will be simple: we’ll begin the morning with Mass; talks will be presented from 9:00am - 12:00pm; followed by Q&A until 1:00pm. Morning refreshments and a light lunch will be catered.
- “What We Learn About St. Joseph From the Old Testament” (Chad Steiner)
- “St. Joseph: An Image of the Father” (Joshua Burks)
- “St. Joseph: A Biblical Biography” (Vern Steiner)
So if you’ve got the date free, and you’re interested in discovering what, for example, Joseph-the-provider-for-Israel in Genesis has to do with Joseph-the-provider-for-the-Israelite-Jesus in the Gospels, then register now and stay tuned as we firm up details in the next few weeks.
