St Joseph's Table - March 19th, the Feast of St. Joseph, the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
The tradition of building the altar to St. Joseph began as far back as the Middle Ages in gratitude to St. Joseph for answering prayers for deliverance from famine. The families of farmers and fisherman built altars in their homes to share their good fortune with others in need. The tradition grew to a more public event. We will celebrate St. Joseph's Feast Day on Tuesday, March 19 from 11:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Today the individuals who work on the altars are fulfilling their own promises to St. Joseph "to share their blessings with those in need." Join us at Trinity for a free lunch. Free will donations are welcomed to support Trinity's youth meals and the Island Food Pantry. Everyone is welcome!
