San Joseph Day March 19th

Every March 19th, the Catholic Church honors a significant saint, regarded as the patron saint of the universal Church: Saint Joseph. He is revered for his role as a symbol of parental guidance and protection within families. Consequently, March 19th is celebrated as Father's Day.

Saint Joseph, the husband of the Virgin Mary and the adoptive father of Jesus, is recognized as the sacred guardian of the Holy Family. In biblical and Christian tradition, Joseph of Nazareth is depicted as a "chosen one of God," bestowed with the grace to discern divine commands. His life exemplifies unwavering faith, honesty, and a strong work ethic.

He was a humble artisan and carpenter. Joseph lovingly embraced Jesus as his own, recognizing him as the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mary's womb.

Joseph of Nazareth is believed to have passed away when Jesus was approximately 12 years old, though the exact date of his death remains unknown. Devotion to Saint Joseph stems from his divine selection as the chaste husband of Mary and earthly father to Jesus.

The veneration of Saint Joseph likely originated among Christian communities in Egypt. In the West, March 19th began to be celebrated as Saint Joseph's feast day during the 14th century. Pope Sixtus IV and Saint Teresa of Jesus further promoted this devotion. In 1870, Pope Pius IX declared Saint Joseph the patron of the universal Church.

May 1st. This date has since evolved into International Workers' Day.
