St. Joseph Services' Giving Day

Please support St. Joseph Services' Giving Day as we celebrate the Feast Day of St. Joseph on Thursday, March 19th.

St. Joseph is known for protecting Mary after finding out she was already pregnant. He had a dream from an angel who said that Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit, the son of God. It is said that Joseph received more dreams from an angel during his life, guiding him to protect Mary and Jesus as they fled to Egypt, and then ultimately bringing them home to Nazareth in Galilee. While not much is known about St. Joseph's life, it is known that he was a skilled worker, which is why he is called St. Joseph the Worker. He worked as a carpenter and taught Jesus his trade.

St. Joseph, having died in the "arms of Jesus and Mary" is considered the model of the pious believer who receives grace at the moment of death, which is why he is considered the patron of a happy death. He is also the patron saint of the Universal Church, unborn children, fathers, travelers, immigrants, house sellers and buyers, craftsmen, engineers,

and working people in general.
