Saint Joseph’s Day is March 19th . The Feast of Saint Joseph is a celebration for all fathers, workers and for those who foster children in any capacity. Joseph was the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He is the foster-father of Jesus.
In times past, Greater House of Prayer held this feast on a Saturday morning as a Prayer Breakfast as an act of convenience for everyone. Going forward, the celebration will its held in the original form. The celebration will be a full banquet with an extensive menu held at an off-site banquet facility with free parking.
The table will be in three tiers, symbolizing the Most Holy Trinity. in addition to the food, flowers (especially lilies); candles, symbolic breads and pastries; in his honor, the custom is for all to wear “red”, in the same way that green is worn on St. Patrick’s Day.
This event is hosted by the Ministers and Deacons of the Greater House of Prayer Church. There has been and will continue to be Pastors, ministers, singers and friends from various churches invited to join in this celebration.
The feast ends with each participant taking home a bag that might be filled with bread, fruit, pastries, cookies, a prayer card of St. Joseph as a keepsake.
