Holy Family

The Holy Family consists of the Child Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and Saint Joseph.  Veneration of the Holy Family was formally begun in the 17th century.

The Feast Day of the Holy Family is the first Sunday after Christmas, or if that Sunday falls on the 1st, then it is celebrated on December 30th, which would be Friday is such years.

The Holy Family is the perfect example of family life for all Christians.  Jesus, Mary, and Joseph should be the model in all things for our family life.  (9:5)
