St. Joseph's Altar

When: 19-Mar-2017 - 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Originally an Italian Catholic tradition, St. Joseph’s Altar made its way into local Cajun and Creole churches after WWI and WWII. The tradition is still practiced to this day where churches will erect an altar in honor of St. Joseph. Learn about the first altar erected in the town square of Sicily several centuries ago as well as what the items on present day altars represent. Visitors will leave with a small bag of treats complete with a lucky fava bean. Regular admission. Memberships honored. Discounts available for groups of 20 or more.
