St. Joseph’s Day Celebrates Joseph the Betrothed- Joseph was a descendant
from the house of David. He was a carpenter. He was the earthly spouse of the
Blessed Virgin Mary, and the foster father of Jesus Christ. He received visions
from angels and is noted for his willingness to immediately get up and do what
God told him. Little is known of him from the scriptures; but, it is assumed he
died prior to the Passion from natural causes. St. Joseph’s Day is traditionally
celebrated on March 19 (and celebrated like a Czech St. Patrick’s Day), however
this year the parade is held on Saturday the 22nd.
