About the Virtual St. Joseph Altar
In the tradition of the Sicilian St. Joseph Altars of New Orleans, the Virtual St. Joseph Altar made its online debut in February of 1999.
The 2017 Altar had over 2000 visitors and 120 offerings. There were over 300 visitors on the March 19 feast day! I thank all who participated, making this a worthy honor to St. Joseph.
This year, the Virtual St. Joseph Altar is celebrating 20 years online! As you visit the Altar and the other pages of this site, I ask you to pray for all who have made Prayer Requests. For info and updates all year long, be sure to join us on Facebook, or visit the Virtual St. Joseph blog.
Because of your continued prayers & support, the Altar gets bigger and better each year! Donations of $25 or more will receive a digital copy of Viva San Giuseppe: A guide for Saint Joseph Altars. This booklet contains a brief history of the St. Joseph Altar, recipes, prayers and more. This out-of-print publication, in digital PDF format, is my gift to you.
Don't miss the 3d Virtual St. Joseph's Altar. Cut, color, and create your own mini St. Joseph's Altar. This fun family craft will help you and your little ones learn about the lovely St. Joseph Altar tradition.
Thank you for these 20 years, and for continuing to spread devotion to St. Joseph.
Viva San Giuseppe!
