Feast of the Holy Family

December 29, 2019

On Sunday December 29th  we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family.

The Feast of the Holy Family is not just about the Holy Family, but about our own families too.

The main purpose of the Feast is to present the Holy Family as the model for all Christian families, and for domestic life in general.

Our family life becomes sanctified when we live the life of the Church within our homes.

This is called the “domestic church” or the “church in miniature.”

The Church urges all Christians to make each home a “family church,” and in doing so, we sanctify the family unit.
