With the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021. Click here for Vatican details.

This wonderful event is the perfect opportunity for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land where special events and visit to exhibits and traditional sites associated with the Saint. Our group pilgrimages can include Mass at the Church of St. Joseph in Nazareth built over the traditional site of Joseph’s workshop.

Many believe Joseph and possibly Jesus worked at nearby Roman city of Sepphoris or Tzippori which we can include in your pilgrimage itinerary.
