The community of St. Leo the Great (126 Church Road, Leonville, 70551) invites everyone to participate in their parish celebration of the annual St. Joseph's Altar.
Viewing of the altar may begin any time after 4:00 PM Mass on Saturday, March 5. Fr. Ken Domingue, pastor, will blessed the altar after the 5:30 PM Mass at St. Catherine's, and the rosary will be prayed immediately following the blessing. Written petitions may be placed in a petition box which will be provided near the altar. The altar will remain open for viewing and praying until 9:00 PM.
The altar will re-open for viewing from 8:00-10:30 AM on Sunday, March 6. At 10:30 AM, the altar will be closed for viewing as three people who have been chosen to represent the Holy Family are served. Once they have eaten, all attending will be fed a spaghetti dinner prepared by Chef Paul "Bubby" Dicapo. The rosary will be prayed at 11:30 AM.
Holy candles in memory of loved ones can be purchased for $4 each, and the candles will be placed on the altar with the loved ones' names next to them. Please pre-order these candles by contacting Shinnett Hollier at 337-879-2424.
