On March 19, Saint Joseph’s University celebrates the Feast of St. Joseph, honoring the namesake of the University. Since the 10th century, this date has been observed as the principal feast day of St. Joseph in Western Christianity and commemorates the life of Joseph. The husband of Mary and earthly father of Jesus, Joseph is often referred to as the father in the shadows. In fact, none of Joseph’s words are written in the gospels and little was recorded about his life.
