St. Joseph's Altar

Our St. Joseph's Altar at our parish church included:
Lilies, a votive candle, oranges, strawberries, grapes, sparkling grape juice
cream puffs, raspberry tarts, apple muffins, biscotti, and cookies.
Last year, it was so much fun to celebrate St. Joseph’s Feast Day by making our first Altar.  This year, our family and friends decided to share our altar with those who labor for our parish:  the priests, secretary, business manager, custodians, and even the women who work in the school kitchen.  My friend and I baked goodies to share, while trying to keep with some of the traditional offerings.  We included Holy Cards for visitors to take with them.  It was fun to share the offerings and the staff was very thankful.  Mary made
After we tore down the altar at the church, we came home and set up our altar at home.  I allowed the kids to snack from it while we worked on our geography day projects.  All in all, it was a great celebration for St. Joseph and allowed us to share something with our parish.

Hope everyone had a Happy St. Joseph’s Feast Day!

God Bless!
