The Year of the Word

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as The God who Speaks: A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini - Pope Benedict XVI's Apostolic Exhortation on 'The Word of the Lord'.

At St Joseph's, we are looking at how we can celebrate this year with our pupils. Working with our Student Faith Council, we are looking at:

  • celebrating
  • living
  • sharing God's Word

Our SFC are working with teachers to ensure that we use this year as an opportunity to develop our understanding of these three themes in our hearts and our community.

Prayer for the Year of the Word

Living God,

you walk alongside us and speak to us throughout the Scriptures.

Your Son, Jesus Christ,

listens to our hopes and fears and shows us how to live for one another.

Send us the Holy Spirit,

to open our hearts and minds so that we may be your witnesses throughout the world.
