Ideas for March Feast Days and Celebrations

Here are some of our favorite traditions for the month of March. This is by no means an exhaustive list, rather it's my way of creating a resource that I plan to revisit each year for myself! I hope you can find it beneficial as well!

Month of St. Joseph

Our family only celebrates three days during March because the month is typically during the season of Lent. Two of these days are solemnities, which means that on these days all Lenten fasting is off, and then there is the Feast of St. Patrick, which we celebrate because we are Irish.

Ideas for how to celebrate St. Joseph this month can be found under his Solemnity on March 19th.
