Saint Joseph Statue — St. Joseph Church, Clarksburg

A statue of Saint Joseph – Husband of Mary occupies a dark wood pedestal on the side wall near the statues of Infant Jesus and Mary with the Child Jesus on the left side of the sanctuary.

This life-size image of the Patron Saint of the parish is dressed in garments of cream and brown with gold trim.  His is a gaze of both concern and acceptance of his sacred role in the Incarnation story.  He holds a long staff topped by a stem of lilies representative of purity and his left hand is over his heart in a sign of his sincerity of purpose.
