2021: A Year of Saint Joseph

Pope Francis declared 2021 a year dedicated to St Joseph. Here in Montligeon, two special pilgrimages on 19th March and on 1st May took place. Individuals, families, or groups, came to the one-day retreat events and entrusted their petitions, to Saint Joseph for family, health, or work. You too can come and do the same, any time you wish.

Throughout the year, you can come and spend the day at the shrine of Montligeon, and entrust to Saint Joseph all your personal intentions (your family, their health, their work or lack of employment, etc).

Hail, gardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph,
to us too, show yourself a father,
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace
mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil.

Pope Francis
