St. Joseph is the protagonist of this day that this year increases, if possible, its Josephine accent, as it is celebrated within the Year dedicated to St. Joseph by Pope Francis. In this sense, the EEC's Subcommission for Seminaries emphasizes that the day recalls that "priests are sent to caring for each person's lifewith the heart of a father, knowing that each one of them is his brother".

"Father and brother, like St. Joseph."is this year's slogan, which is obviously marked in its actions by the Covid19 pandemic and which refers to the fact that "The priest takes care of Jesus in every man, in every brother. For this reason he is called to become "a neighbor to others".". In the Theological-Pastoral Reflection published for this day, it is emphasized that "the seminary is a privileged place and time for each seminarian to discover how God makes him grow through the Church and His provident hand"..
