St. Joseph is the patron saint for Neil M. Ross. St. Joseph, according to Christian tradition, was not the biological father of Jesus; he served as his foster-father and as head of the Holy Family.  The gospels describe Joseph as a “tekton” (τεκτων); traditionally the word has been taken to mean “carpenter”. In Roman Catholic traditions, Joseph is the patron saint of workers and we celebrate his Feast day on March 19th.  He was declared to be the patron saint and protector of the Catholic Church.    (Pope Pius IX in 1870)
