Our family’s patron Saint is Saint Joseph. He has been the patron of DH’s family going WAY back to the old country. Every year, we have a St. Joseph’s day table to give thanks for God’s blessings and the intercession of Saint Joseph. Last year, we had about eighty people!!
It was wonderful.
A number of our friends who attended were not even Catholic, and they all said they got SO much out of it and loved hearing about St. Joseph. As a matter of fact, a local Protestant minister friend attended, and asked if we would do something about St. Joseph at their social center next year! (Many Protestants really miss out on learning about the rich lives of the Saints…..it’s a shame.)
Oh…St. Joseph’s Day is March 15th.
