Year of St. Joseph

At the request of their pastors, the Archbishop has designated the following parishes to serve as temporary shrines during the Year of St. Joseph: St. Joseph, North Bend; St. Joseph, Dayton; and St. Joseph, Wapakoneta.

A pious visit to one of these churches during this holy year is an occasion for receiving a plenary indulgence, for those who recite an Our Father an the Creed, along with fulfillment of the other requirements for obtaining an indulgence (prayer for the Holy Father, sacramental confession, and reception of Holy Communion).

You may wish to see the other shrines’ visiting hours and any possible devotional activities. The other parishes’ websites are: and

We are so excited that our parishes can celebrate this Year of St. Joseph in a special way, with one of our churches designated as a shrine!
