On the Feast of St. Joseph
March 19, 2021

Bishop Hicks' bright red sweater is a clear statement that today we celebrate a very important day: St. Joseph's Feast Day. And how could we not? In this year of St. Joseph, we draw closer to his powerful intercession than ever before. St. Joseph alone was a "savior to the savior," protecting Jesus from Herod. This was an incomprehensible honor and responsibility for any man to be a father to the God-man, and St. Joseph was chosen for just that. God has wonderful plans for your life as well, and St. Joseph would love to be a spiritual father to you as you discover and live your path to holiness.
