Saint Joseph the Worker Statue — St. Joseph Church, Geneva

A humble, working Saint awaits prayers of those who toil for good.

Of special significance are the images of the patron Saint Joseph who is depicted in no less than nine separate ways and locations in the church. One of the most prominent is the statue of Saint Joseph the Worker located in the traditional place on the right side of the main altar on an elevated pedestal on the wall. The saint holds a carpenter’s square in his right hand and a stem of lilies representative of his great purity in his left hand. The statue depicts the humility of the working Saint in his facial expression, downward gaze and muted colors of brown and gray.
