St. Patrick’s Church to Sponsor a St. Joseph Altar

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

St. Patrick’s Church will sponsor a St. Joseph Altar at Ozanam Inn on March 19, 2010. Monetary donations are now being accepted to defray the cost of building an altar dedicated to St. Joseph on his special feast day. This beautiful tradition, dating back to when many Sicilians arrived in New Orleans at the end of the  nineteenth century, is a special devotion to St. Joseph in fulfillment of promises made and favors granted.
Please make your check payable to St. Patrick’s Church, specifying that it is for the St. Joseph Altar. We will soon be asking for volunteers to assist in the  preparation of the altar. For more information, please call the rectory at 525-4413.
