St Joseph

International Painting Competition organized by a Polish Catholic School

In line with his Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalled the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, 1060 works from over 300 schools and cultural and educational centers were submitted to the International Painting Competition organized by a Polish Catholic School in Wolin to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of St Joseph during the month of May 202.

The Service Diocésain de L’Education Catholique, SeDEC in Mauritius requested St Joseph’s College to represent the Catholic Confessional School sector.
