Feast Day of Saint Joseph the Worker : 1 May

May 1, 2017 – 9:00 am

May 1 is the Feast Day of Saint Joseph the Worker, who is the ACU Patron Saint of Corporate Services.

The feast of St. Joseph the Worker was established by Pope Pius XII in 1955 in order to Christianise the concept of labor and give to all workers a model and a protector. By the daily labor in his workshop – offered to God with patience and joy – St. Joseph provided for Mary and Jesus, and so became an example to all labourers on the dignity and value of work as part of the human condition.

On the Feast Day of Saint Joseph, let’s thank the lovely staff on all campuses who do such a brilliant job maintaining and enhancing our campus spaces.
