Our Patron Saint

   Saint Joseph our Patron Saint

Accepting the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph is our most powerful intercessor in heaven due to his singular role as the Head of the Holy Family.

St. Joseph is the foster father of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He’s the patron saint of fathers. Joseph is also the protector of the Church. He’s one of the patrons of refugees, because he took Mary and Jesus, when Jesus was a baby, to safety in Egypt, to flee the wrath of the tyrannical King Herod. Joseph is also the patron saint of laborers, because he was a working man, a carpenter. He’s the patron saint of families and, here’s a beautiful one, he’s the patron saint of those who are dying.

“Some Saints are privileged to extend to us their patronage with particular efficacy in certain needs, but not in others; but our holy patron St. Joseph has the power to assist us in all cases, in every necessity, in every undertaking.”   -St. Thomas Aquinas

Throughout history many of the Church’s sons and daughters have successfully gone to St. Joseph for various needs.
