About Us

Our Patron

Saint Joseph, often clarified as Saint Joseph the carpenter, is an important figure in Christian belief, the husband of Mary, mother of Jesus. According to Christian tradition he was not the biological father of Jesus, but acted as his foster-father and as head of the Holy Family. According to Christian tradition, Jesus was referred to as the son of Joseph during his public life, though in Mark he is referred to as Mary's son (Mark 6:3). Joseph is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Lutheran churches.
