During the Year of St. Joseph, the diocese is focusing on various aspects of St. Joseph each month. February is ‘Family as the Domestic Church.’ So… What is the ‘Domestic Church?’ It is a clear reminder that it is within the frame of our family where we first learn about God. Pray that St. Joseph guide us in nurturing our domestic Church!

According to the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on the Church: “The family, is so to speak, the domestic Church.” (Lumen Gentium #11). This means that it is in the context of the family that we first learn who God is and to prayerfully seek His will for us.

St. Joseph led his domestic Church and is a model of inspiration to us on how we can lead our own. #YearOfStJoseph #FamilyAsTheDomesticChurch
