The St. Jude Altar began in a small village in Sicily. There was a drought and the farmer prayed for rain and promised to feed the village with the produce. They only had fava beans to eat (lucky beans). When the rains came he kept his promise. Families from the village came to the United Statess, especially here to here in New Orleans, They kept the tradition of the St. Joseph Altar to give thanks to God for their Blessings and to feed the poor.
Please bring your Rice Bowls to Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday.
