Saint Joseph is considered the patron saint of the Roman Catholic Church. He is also the patron saint of workers, and workers do appreciate having his feast day off work in Colombia.
In Colombia, Saint Joseph’s Day is also referred to as “Dia del Hombre”, meaning “Day of Men”. It is seen as a celebration not only of Joseph and of the role of good fathers, but also of the role of men in general in society.
