Today, Fr. Josh tackles the question, “How should Catholics celebrate Halloween?” Did you know that Halloween has its roots in a Catholic solemnity? How has secular culture changed the holiday? How do Christians celebrate Halloween in the modern day? Fr. Josh covers everything you need to know.
Ask Fr. Josh is the question and answer show to help you navigate life when our Catholic Faith doesn’t give an easy “fill-in-the blank” answer. In each video, Father addresses one question from three different perspectives: your relationship with God, your relationship with the Church, and your relationship with others.

While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. Then, one day in adoration, he fell in love with Jesus and received the call to become a priest.
Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
