In the almost deserted streets of the afternoon of May 1, the image of San José Obrero advanced through the Cuyaya neighborhood. The parish celebrated its patron saint festivities yesterday with the procession and then the mass with the blessing of work tools and vehicles.

The date mobilized many families, in this and other temples, to be grateful for having work and if not, to ask for intercession to find a job.

“Today is the great day in which with joy, joy and reflection we honor the one who has been anointed by God in such a wonderful, great task, of immense dedication and responsibility as it was to protect and love Our Lord Jesus and Our Mother Mary. How not to recognize his holy work in all his actions, including his daily work as a carpenter. He teaches us with his life example that work action is essentially a delivery of loving service to what our neighbor needs,” they highlighted. the parish headed by Father Carlos Alfaro. On the eve he accompanied Brother Dante Ríos and nuns.


In the morning there was also a procession and mass in the San Martín neighborhood, which is under the protection of San José Obrero. “All together to our good Joseph who knew how to accompany from silence and teaching Jesus the work of dignified work. Saint Joseph the Worker, pray for us,” was the prayer they shared.

While in the Puna of Jujuy, in Huancar department of Susques, yesterday they had a community breakfast, the procession through the streets of the town, the event, parade, community lunch, bingo and popular dance. The activities were organized by the Huancar Aboriginal Community and intermediate institutions with the support of the Susques Municipal Commission.

The bishop of the Prelature of Humahuaca, Félix Paredes, led the religious ceremonies and prayed that “San José Obrero encourages every worker, intercedes for all workers and in a special way from the Christian perspective encourages us to assume our mission as a true work of God that he has given to each one of us”.

Today they will say goodbye to the pilgrims and at 10 the Schoenstatt Virgin and Justo Juez will be enthroned.


On May 1, 1955, Pope Pius XII instituted the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker. Nothing could be more natural than the headline of the new Christian festival being Joseph, husband of Mary and acting father of Jesus, the worker who did not have it easy at all despite the most noble mission received from God for the definitive salvation of every man; He is one of the people, the born worker who understood shortcomings, knew of hardships in his family and bore them with dignity, suffered forced emigration, knew the fatigue of the body due to his efforts, carried out the family responsibility of he; That is to say, he lived as any worker lives.
