On Friday, students in religion classes and faculty were invited to visit the St. Joseph altar in the Chapel prepared by Religion teacher, Terry Creel. "Today is the Solemnity of St. Joseph which is higher than a feast day or memorial for other saints," said Mr. Creel.
"St. Joseph Altars are centuries old traditions brought to New Orleans from Sicily. I grew up seeing a St. Joseph altar. My aunt and uncle continue a family tradition of making an altar each year. Their tradition is over a hundred years old. I want to thank all of those that helped with the altar. Mrs. Whiteside made a beautiful cross cake. Bread in shapes of a ladder, cross, and other shapes are displayed. I think it is important for the students to see our Catholic traditions," shared Mr. Creel.
