For some the month of March made be viewed as cold and dreary month, but for Sicilian families carrying on the traditions surrounding the feast of St. Joseph, it is a month of prayer, family, fun, food, and celebration! Today, my mother Pat, daughter Amanda and I will work together in assembly line fashion, carrying dozens of saints from the “Vetrina” (China cabinet) to the kitchen sink where each will be carefully washed, dried, polished, and lined up on the dinning room table awaiting tomorrow’s scheduled alter set up. Friends and family will gather tomorrow afternoon to erect our Families 2014 St. Joseph alter. This traditional gathering, marks the official beginning off the 2014 Feast of St. Joseph Novena Celebration at our home.
Viva San Giuseppe!
