Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker

During the Easter season, various feasts of the Lord, of Mary, and of the saints are celebrated. One of these is the Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker. In addition to his feast day in March, Saint Joseph has a second feast day, celebrated on May 1. Joseph was a man of great compassion and faith. He worked hard as a foster father and as a carpenter. Joseph’s trade and commitment to work is particularly highlighted in a year marked by a global pandemic, a reminder of the dignity and value of work and of the essential worker. This year, the Church is also in the midst of the “Year of Saint Joseph.” Pope Francis’ apostolic letter Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”) marks the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.
