St. Joseph Altar

(A short history)

GOLF INFO AND REGISTRATION

     The Italian American Heritage Society cordially invites you to share in the time-honored tradition of the Saint Joseph Altar.  The Saint Joseph Altar is Sicilian in origin.  During a terrible famine, the people of Sicily pleaded to Saint Joseph, their patron saint, for relief.  Saint Joseph answered their prayers and the famine ended.  In gratitude, they prepared a table with foods they had harvested, and after paying homage to Saint Joseph, the food was distributed to the less fortunate.
