Holy Family

To honor Jesus, Mary, and Joseph is a devotion that is beneficial to all Christians. The lives of the Holy Family on earth serve as models for every state of life for both the individual and the family.

God offers His graces through the Holy Family of Nazareth to encourage devotion and reflection on their lives. We are challenged to make their way of life, our way of life. They are a source of virtue, they enlighten our minds, and they show us how to love through sacrifice.

To aid your devotion to the Holy Family we have a variety of gifts, medals, pictures and statues that will be a constant reminder of their example. The Feast of the Holy Family in honor of Jesus, his mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph is celebrated on the Sunday within the Octave of Christmas, that is, the Sunday between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. The feast was instituted by Pope Leo XIII in 1893.
