Calling all those with a special devotion to St. Joseph and those who desire a special devotion to St. Joseph!
Its time to begin preparing for the 2015-16 St. Joseph Altar!
St. Josephs feast day is Saturday, March 19th, so we will have our annual altar on Friday, March 18th — only a few weeks away!
Monetary donations are most welcome. The money will be used to place orders for specialty breads (hammer, nail, cross, crown of thorns, ladder, sandal, fish, bishops hat) and specialty cakes (Sacred Heart of Jesus cake, Bible cake, Cross cake, lamb cakes, and round cakes). You are also welcome to help with setting up of the altar on Thursday, March 17. And, of course, we will need all the items found on a traditional St. Joseph Altar — Italian cookies, memorial cakes, cakes to cut and serve, flowers, candles, holy cards, nuts, lemons, oranges, apples, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, potatoes — just to name a few.
If you have any statues or pictures that we could use to display on the altar, please let us know.
The St. Joseph Altar will be open Friday, March 18, from 9:00 – 4:00. The 8th grade will perform the Tupa, Tupa and recite the Rosary at 11:30.
All are invited to participate – students, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, and uncles. Please call Marilyn Piglia DAntoni at 503-7621 if you can donate in any way. Have a get-together with family and friends to bake Italian cookies for the altar! If you need Italian cookie recipes, just give us a call!
Viva San Giuseppi!
