According to Our Lady of Lourdes St. Joseph Altar Ministry Chairwoman Mary Leonard, this year it will offer the largest cookbook to date at the altar. It contains more than 100 recipes for the traditional cookies and foods, many of which have been handed down for generations, she said.
"It's a collage of recipes from people who have come here over the years," she said.
Their first printing of 150 copies sold out quickly, so they are in the process of reprinting. The cookbooks will be $5 each. Mary is asking that people write to her. Include your name, address, phone number, and the number of cookbooks you are interested in. You should probably figure on $5 or so for shipping. Do not send money at this time! When they reprint, they will contact and collect the money/orders.
