St. Joseph Feast Day Celebration Ideas for your Home

St. Joseph’s feast day is coming up on March 19, and it’s actually a solemnity, which is a little higher ranking than a feast day. In other words- it’s a fun and important day! 🙂 There are a lot of ways to celebrate the solemnity of St. Joseph at home. Last year, we made a St. Joseph altar for the first time, and it was a ton of fun! Here are a bunch of St. Joseph feast day celebration ideas for your home!

St. Joseph’s Altar At Home

If you’re thinking that you have no idea of how to go about making a St. Joseph’s Altar at your home, then you need to check out my post on St. Joseph Altar for Beginners, because that was soooo me last year! But I put everything you need to know in one easy-to-bite-off blog post. (And no, you don’t need a super fancy St. Joseph statue- I link to a printable version!)


If you’re looking for ideas of different foods and things to place on your St. Joseph Altar, check out last year’s post about St. Joseph Altar ideas, including one of my favorite (and very easy projects) where you carve symbolic fig newtons!

I also have an ideas for a St. Joseph’s altar cake if you’re in a baking mood.

St. Joseph Printables For Kids

If you’re still feeling intimidated about putting together a St. Joseph altar, check out this cut and color version that I made. Super easy and fun for kids!

I have a free printable version to do a special St. Joseph’s novena with your kids! This is a really great way to get the kids truly involved in a novena. 

I also have a post with links to a bunch of different Saint Joseph printables. From paper dolls and prayer cards to coloring pages and lapbooks, there’s a lot out there!


If you’re not feeling up to anything complicated and your printer is out of ink, just serve some sloppy Joe’s and tell your kids about how awesome Saint Joseph is! 😉 God bless!
