The Year of St. Joseph wrapped up on Dec. 8, but Catholics have a new opportunity to get to know the man seldom mentioned in the Bible.

“St. Joseph: Our Spiritual Father,” a documentary produced by the Knights of Columbus, is now available online at no cost.

Viewers can find the film at:

The documentary is 60 minutes long and initially premiered this past October on ABC-affiliated stations.

Viewers can learn more about St. Joseph from a historical standpoint, including his role as the foster father of Jesus, a spiritual father to the church and an example for fathers today.

Although St. Joseph was rarely mentioned in the Bible, there is much to learn from the life he led. The families and individuals featured in the documentary are a testament to that.

Pope Francis declared the Year of St. Joseph on Dec. 8, 2020, the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph becoming the patron saint of the universal church.
