St. JOSEPH

Christian Saint

Also known as Joseph the Carpenter, Yosef

Patron Saint of Carpenters and Jesus's step-dad

The husband of the blessed virgin St. Mary, he is of course well-known as the step-dad of Jesus.

Somewhere along the line he vanished from the Bible story before things got really interesting. The general opinion is that he died before Jesus began his ministry. If so, it’s interesting to speculate what effect this may have had on his step-son’s career.

Joseph is Patron Saint of Carpenters and Engineers. Also Fathers, Families and Social Welfare.
