Who is Saint Joseph?
In the Gospels, Joseph is the husband of Mary, mother of Jesus, and is venerated as Saint Joseph in the Catholic Church.
Joseph is regarded as the patron saint of workers and is associated with various feast days.
Pope Pius XI declared him to be both the patron and the protector of the Catholic Church, in addition to his patronages of the sick and of a happy death (due to the belief that he died in the presence of Jesus and Mary).
In popular piety, Joseph is regarded as a model for fathers and has also become patron of various dioceses and places.
St Joseph's Day 2021
This year we celebrated St Joseph's Day on the feast day of St Joseph the worker, on the 1st of May.
Every class focused on a value held by St Joseph and created classwork based around this. Fr Michael, our parish priest, held a virtual Mass for the whole school providing time for spiritual reflection. We also took part in a 'St Joseph's Got Talent' show within our bubbles. Have a look at some of our photos below.
