We don’t know many details about St. Joseph, but he was a model of trust in God. Celebrate the life and example of St. Joseph with our fun activities pack. Perfect for this Year of St. Joseph, the pack includes:
- a cute puzzle for children to color
- a word search to spark discussion on Joseph’s hidden life
- a family game idea inspired by Luke 2:41–52
- a sheet inviting exploration of lessons Jesus might have learned from Joseph, just as we learn lessons from our parents and other special adults in our lives.
Use the packet on the March 19 feast of St. Joseph, the May 1 feast of St. Joseph the Worker, or any day in this Year of St. Joseph.
“Each of us can discover in Joseph—the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence—an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble. Saint Joseph reminds us that those who appear hidden or in the shadows can play an incomparable role in the history of salvation. A word of recognition and of gratitude is due to them all.”
—Patris Corde (With a Father’s Heart), apostolic letter by Pope Francis
