Join Missio and the Mill Hill Missionaries from 10-18 March every year to pray a special Novena to St Joseph.

8 December 2020 marked the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, Pope Francis proclaimed a ‘Year of Saint Joseph’ from that day to 8 December 2021.

St Joseph’s Missionary Society (the Mill Hill Missionaries) is a longstanding partner of Missio and is Britain’s own missionary society, founded by Cardinal Vaughan in 1866. Prayer is the foundation of all mission work, both in this country and abroad. Each year the Mill Hill community prepares for the feast day of St Joseph, their patron, with a special Novena of Masses and prayers.

The Novena is a positive way for Red Box supporters to pray for each other and build links of prayer across the world for missionaries and the people they serve.

Join us in prayer

During March each year, you can join in at home by praying the daily Novena and prayer, and you can also send your petitions to us.
