St. Joseph’s Day, also known as The Feast Of St. Josephor La Festa di San Giuseppe, is being celebrated on March 18, 2018 at Holy Family.
Besides being celebrated by the Catholic Church, St. Joseph’s Day is commemorated by Anglican Community and Lutheran Church. On Western calendars since the 10thcentury, St. Joseph’s Day was accepted in Rome in 1479 and added to the General Roman Calendar for celebration in 1621. Italian-Americans hold St. Joseph’s Day with a special importance, especially those from Sicily. St. Joseph was credited with preventing a famine in Sicily and as a result, the day is commonly commemorated with a festival and a special feast of which all donations received would go to feed the hungry. Parades and processions are also held in Italy on this day. Traditionally, Red is worn on St. Joseph’s Day so if you have red you can celebrate the day by doing so.
Don’t forget to join us as we Honor and have a Traditional St. Joseph’s Day Table!
