According to one legend, there was a famine in Sicily many centuries ago. St. Joseph, the foster father of the Infant Savior, was prayed to and invoked for special intercession before the throne of God. With the end of the dreadful famine, a special feast of thanksgiving was held in special commemoration of St. Joseph, a figure representing and mediating the loving providences of the Creator.

Over the many years, individuals and families or groups of friends have offered magnificent tables in thanksgiving for other special favors received from their devotion to St. Joseph.

Our Celebration
Every year we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, and share our bounty as a parish family during the Lenten season. This table is presented as a Thanksgiving for all the intentions of our parishioners. Watch the bulletin for the exact date and with your family, come, share, and celebrate with us.


Parishioners are asked to contribute in the form of food, services or money (which will be turned back to the St. Joseph's table and the parish). This is an event for the entire family and everyone’s participation makes it a greatly anticipated and successful event each year.
