St. Joseph's Altar Display in Parish Hall is an Italian tradition for the purpose of giving thanks, providing food for the poor, and spreading devotion to the friendship of St. Joseph.  Traditionally, people offer fruit,  handmade breads, and meatless dishes.  Prayer requests and notes of thanks are also often placed on the  altar.  Sometimes loved ones are remembered as well.  If you would like to help create this altar by bringing baked goods, flowers, or canned foods, please call Michael at the telephone number listed below.

O Blessed Saint Joseph, faithful guardian and protector of virgins, to whom God entrusted Jesus and Mary, I implore you by the love which you did bear them, to preserve me from every defilement of soul and body, that I may always serve them in holiness and purity of love. Amen.

"I know by experience that the glorious St. Joseph assists us generally in all necessities. I never asked him for anything which he did not obtain for me."
— St. Teresa of Avila
