HAPPY ST. JOSEPH’S DAY!

Wishing everyone a blessed St. Joseph’s Day!  Last night we finished up our 9 day Rosary at Sista Felicia’s, as she and Barry graciously open up their home to us each year. This year’s altar was a true labor of love and devotion and it may not be perfect, or exactly how our grandmother’s and great grandmother’s experienced it, but I can certainly tell you that “our elder village” was with us, guiding us and praying over us…and ok…maybe having a few chuckles with us along the way too! To sit and view the photos on the altars of the people we pray for is especially moving.  All of the altar breads were made by hand over the last 3 months by our Novena “Village” of women and are the focus of this year’s altar.   Our feast was held last Friday night and all of our 47 Novena Comare’s invited their families and friends to celebrate and honor St. Joseph.  Over 175 guest enjoyed an evening of prayer, friendship, faith and lots of delicious food!!   There just aren’t any photographs I could take that would do it justice but here are a few! Viva! Gesu, Maria, Giuseppe!
