St. Joseph the Worker Garden
"Where there is no vision, the people will perish"
Father David's vision was to venerate St. Joseph under the title:
"St. Joseph the Worker"
The St. Joseph the Worker statue was placed in the garden thanks to our volunteer crew who moved St. Joseph and the pedestal to a place of prominence in our garden. To capture the devotion to Saint Joseph within the Catholic liturgy, in 1870, Pope Pius IX declared Saint Joseph the patron of the universal Church. In 1955, Pope Pius XII added the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker. This silent saint, who was given the noble task of caring and watching over the Virgin Mary and Jesus, now cares for and watches over the Church and models for all the dignity of human work.
