Let us tell you a little about St Joseph;
St Joseph was married to Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Gospel of Matthew calls him a 'righteous man' who observed God's law.
He was a caring and compassionate man. He took care of Mary and when he was told his family was in danger, he left everything he owned, his friends and family and fled with Mary and baby Jesus.
Feast day for St Joseph, husband of Mary- 19th March

A prayer to St Joseph
St Joseph, watch over me
and care for me
just as you cared for Jesus;
and by your help,
may I come to know,
and so grow in strength and wisdom
and the favour of God.
