St Margaret Clitherow

Margaret was born in 1555 in England. She was raised as a Protestant but after her marriage, she made the decision to become Catholic. It was a brave decision, because Margaret lived during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, who wanted to rid England of all Catholics and the practice of the Catholic faith. She was later arrested and called for the crime of harbouring Roman Catholic priests.

Her Feast Day is August 30th

 

St Joseph

Saint Joseph was the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the foster-father of Jesus. He was a very good and patient man. Saint Joseph was a man of action. When God told him in a dream that it was okay to marry Mary, and when God told him to go to Egypt to save Jesus from Herod, Saint Joseph listened. He always obeyed God even though he did not always understand.

His Feast Day is March 19th.
