Pope Proclaims 2021, Year of St. Joseph
On December 8, 2020 Pope Francis in his Apostolic Letter, entitled Patris Corde (With a Father’s Heart), proclaimed the year 2021 as a Year of St. Joseph for the Universal Church. The occasion for the declaration comes on the 150th anniversary of the Proclamation of St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, by Blessed Pius IX.
The Pope also cites the pandemic as a reason for the special year to St. Joseph, explaining that “our lives are woven together and sustained by ordinary people, people often overlooked…Doctors, nurses, storekeepers and supermarket workers, cleaning personal, caregivers, transport workers, men and women working to provide essential services and public safety…They understand that no one is saved alone.” In St. Joseph the Pope hopes “each of us can discover – the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble.”
Marian Immersion Program
The Marian Immersion Program is a premier program designed to immerse students in the pursuit of theological, philosophical, historical, and cultural knowledge centered on developing a meaningful understanding of the Blessed Virgin Mary, while creating a deeper liberal arts educational experience. Specialized courses and opportunities are provided so that students and others may form a greater understanding of Mary’s role in our World today.
Designed to reach large audiences, our conferences feature ever-changing themes encompassing the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our first campaign is entitled, “Mary is Always With Us.” We focus our conferences around Our Lady as our Spiritual Mother, as Pope Francis proclaimed her last year: Mother of the Church. Please click on the side tab for information about Fatima and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart conference in Cork, Ireland this July 10th, 11th & 12th.
The Marian Institute has immediate needs as it embarks on its mission to bring souls closer to Mary. We rely on the generosity of our benefactors to provide assistance with our expenses as we begin our journey and promote our visions, share our objectives and strategies, create social and academic programs and courses, and educate others of the beauty and creativity found in this world.
“This is the desire that we rejoice to entrust to the hands and the heart of the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary…, may she be the Star of the evangelization ever renewed which the Church, docile to her Lord’s command, must promote and accomplish, especially in these times which are difficult but full of hope!”
– POPE PAUL VI, EVANGELII NUNTIANDI
