The Year of St Joseph - 2020-2021
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 8 December 2020, to 8 December 2021.
To learn more about St Joseph click here and watch the video below.
This is a resource which helps us understand as a diocese what we are praying for and as a church what we are celebrating, remembering and doing for every single day of the year.
It is like a diary/calendar for the whole church across the whole world.
Please take some time at the beginning of each week to share this with your family.
Also watch the weekly video show that highlights and celebrates all the awesome things happening in our church and our diocese. It’s a chance to really explore the rich Church year!

FUND RAISING AT ST JOHN FISHER
As a school we take pride in sharing our Catholic Ethos with others through a variety of fundraising activities. Last Lent, the school Council guided us through collecting coppers and raised £550 for CAFOD. The sale of Poppies raised £299.60 for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal whilst the Christmas play collections raised £400.56 for the Heart Link Children's Charity. This years donations for the Harvest Festival were fantastic, allowing the St Vincent de Paul Society to pass on produce to a variety of people from the sick and elderly to helping refugees through the Red Cross.
