Saint Joseph

Saint Joseph is the patron saint of house hunters, fathers, carpenters and the universal church.

A carpenter by trade, he was the Virgin Mary’s husband. He searched for a place to stay in Bethlehem when Mary was about to give birth to Jesus, but there was no room for them at the inn (Luke 2:4-7).
