|St. Joseph Altar to be celebrated|
The annual celebration of the traditional St. Joseph Altar, to benefit the Food Pantry of the Eastern Deanery St. Vincent DePaul Society, will be held Saturday, March, 19.
The celebration will begin with a 4 p.m. Mass at St. Matthew Catholic Church in downtown Monroe. The service will be followed by the traditional Altar meal in the community center behind the church. The meal traditionally includes spaghetti with red sauce, hard-boiled eggs, fried vegetables, various breads, Sicilian cookies and other desserts.
Bishop Michael Duca of Shreveport will lead the evening's celebrations.
The tradition of St. Joseph Altar dates to more than 500 years ago when the people of Sicily experienced a terrible famine. They petitioned to St. Joseph and the famine was brought to an end. Today, the gathering is highlighted by the offering of gifts to distribute to the poor.
Everyone is invited to contribute canned goods and non-perishable food items and money to the St. Vincent DePaul Society Food Pantry. Donation items may be brought to area Catholic churches.
