Students visit St. Joseph Altar

The Catholic celebration of St. Joseph’s Day was observed Wednesday. At this time, elaborate altars in honor of St. Joseph are constructed as a labor of love commemorating the relief St. Joseph provided during a famine in Sicily and as a way to express gratitude for any sort of fortune in their lives. The food was prepared and the altar created under the direction of Rosemary Cutrera with the assistance of many community members. The students and staff of Holy Cross Elementary and Central Catholic High School visited the altar and each person was given a bag of cookies. Pictured are Mary Russo Berry and Cutrera sharing the history of the St. Joseph Altar with second grade students.
