Today we celebrate the Feast of St Joseph. St Joseph was Jesus’ father on earth and he worked as a carpenter. St Joseph has a special link to our school as he is affiliated with the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart – the religious order that Mary Mackillop founded. Our school was originally known as St Joseph’s School. Pope Francis has dedicated this year as the Year of St Joseph.
O God, who in your inexpressible providence were pleased to choose Saint Joseph as spouse of the most holy Mother of your Son, grant, we pray, that we, who revere him as our protector on earth, may be worthy of his heavenly intercession.
Through Christ our Lord.
