Building Projects Inspired by St. Joseph ‘the wood worker’.

Saving the roof of a new cathedral in an area of Malawi beset by natural disasters is one of the key building projects Aid to the Church is undertaking to mark the year of Saint Joseph. National director Neville Kyrke-Smith said: “These projects will transform the lives of the local Catholic communities struggling to live out their Faith.”

He added: “Saint Joseph was a carpenter, but the Greek word we translate as carpenter – tecton – probably means he was a wood worker constructing roofs and other vast structures. So the building projects ACN is backing, such as the new roof for Malawi’s Cathedral of Saint Joseph the Worker in Karonga, are very appropriate.”
