“To a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary” (Luke 1:27).

Our St. Joseph Altar honors St. Joseph, the foster father of Jesus, commemorating his intercession for the relief that God provided during the famine in Sicily. The altar is adorned with statues, figurines, candles and many food items. Cookies, cakes, and breads, often in the form of shellfish, are common decorations for altars. Children dressed as saints and the Holy Family enjoy partaking in the celebration. The altar and the novena and devotions that accompany it are celebrated and enjoyed by all the cultures that make up our Church. It takes many people to plan the devotion, bake all the offerings, construct, and decorate the altar and serve the attendees. Are you able to give thanks to God by helping us?
