NOTE: This traditional Novena to the Holy Family reminds us that our family is the primary classroom in which we learn the truths of the Catholic Faith, and that the Holy Family should always be the model for our own. If we imitate the Holy Family, our family life will always be in conformity with the teachings of the Church, and it will serve as a shining example to others of how to live the Christian Faith.
This novena is particularly appropriate during February, the Month of the Holy Family, and in the days leading up to the Feast of the Holy Family (the Sunday in the octave of Christmas, or December 30, if Christmas falls on a Sunday).
