List of St. Joseph Altars in the New Orleans area


The following parishes, schools and entities of the Archdiocese of New Orleans will carry on the tradition of erecting St. Joseph Altars this month.  The tradition, which is Sicilian in origin but carried on locally by Italian-Americans and people of all nationalities and faiths, includes baking cookies and cakes and preparing foods for the altar.  The offerings accompany petitions to St. Joseph or are expressions of thanks for favors granted. 

Visit for the complete list.

Thanks, WWL, for the link to the Virtual St. Joseph Altar!
