St. Joseph Table

On March 19, the feast of St. Joseph the Faithful Spouse of the Virgin Mary, the children of Casa Hogar and members of the Guild will come together for a special meal to pay tribute to St. Joseph and celebrate Padre Jose Walijewksi’s life with inspirational stories and prayer.

We invite you to join us by supporting the Guild and beginning a “new” tradition of St. Joseph’s Table in your homes and parishes.  St. Joseph’s table is a long-standing tradition in Italy honoring the earthly father of our Lord, Jesus Christ, St. Joseph.

What is St. Joseph’s Table 

An ancient Italian tradition, St. Joseph’s Table is a ritual meal held on or close to March 19th during the Feast of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary. During this celebration, families and friends come together for hospitality and nurturing in the making of fulfilling promises.

The table includes the altar with an image of Saint Joseph, flowers, candles, fruit and bread along with a simple meal to signify the intercession of Saint Joseph for preventing famine during a period of severe drought.

Providing food for the poor and sharing leftovers from the Table have also become custom. We invite you to join us in carrying out Father Joe’s Legacy and sharing this tradition in his honor.

Join one of the events happening in your community or gather with friends and family to host your own! For materials to host an event or more information on the Legacy Guild, please email Noel Furger at




Annual Nativity Tour on December 15  – 7 PM CST

Please join us for the LIVE Casa Hogar Annual Nativity Tour – December 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm.

During Advent the Casa Hogar family has the tradition of creating nativity scenes in each family’s apartment, the cafeteria and the church. If you are counting, that is ten nativity scenes in all.  The amount of time and work put into making the fields, rivers, shepherds, kings, animals, stables, Josephs, Marys and Baby Jesus’ is amazing.

During the LIVE Nativity Tour, Msgr. Joseph Hirsch and the children will guide you from family to family to enjoy each nativity scene. There are always unexpected surprises with unusual additions in their nativity scenes.  Join us and see how different, and yet the same, nativity scenes can be.
