March 19th is the Solemnity of St. Joseph. It is the Saint that will once again be the center of attention for the Gallegos Family. According to Senaida Kane, the sister of Bishop Alphonse Gallego, this year’s celebration marks the 75th year that the family will gather in his honor. This tradition was established by Joseph and Caciana Gallegos as they called their family together to pray the Rosary in veneration of the great St. Joseph.
One member of the family will be looking on from the heavenly heights, no doubt. He is Bishop Alphonse Gallegos Member of the Order of Augustinian Recollects and Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Sacramento, California, whose cause for beatification and canonization was introduced to the Vatican in Rome in November, 2006.
St. Joseph, pray for us!
