St Joseph's Day Celebrations

St Joseph’s Day takes place each year on March 19th, always during Lent and 

usually two days after St. Patrick’s Day. But who was Saint Joseph and what 

are some facts about his life? Why do we celebrate St. Joseph’s Day? 

Saint Joseph was chosen by God to be the husband of Mary and the foster 

father of Jesus on Earth. He was selected by God for this role because he 

could be trusted to watch over and protect them.
