Celebrate the feast of Jesus's earthly father with some of these wonderful traditions.

Tomorrow is St. Joseph’s Day, and you might be wondering how you can mark this special feast. The pope declared 2021 as St. Joseph’s year, so you might want to really pull the stops out this March 19!

While going to Mass may be tricky for many this year, there is a myriad of beautiful traditions from our Mediterranean brothers and sisters that you could partake in with your family members. Just click on the slideshow for a little inspiration on how to honor San Giuseppe!
