Its time to begin preparing for the 2013-14 St. Joseph Altar
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 2013-14 St. Joseph Altar! St. Josephs feast day is Wednesday, March 19 — 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 Tuesday, March 18. 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 altar viewers, 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 Wednesday, March 19, 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, alumni, 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!
