The Saint Joseph Altar is a traditional Italian event that occurs annually. This year it will be on Sunday, March 17. The event begins in St. Ambrose Church with a Mass in Italian, followed by a brief procession to the school cafeteria just down the block. The centerpiece of the event is the altar, a very large decorated table laden with breads, cakes, cookies, Italian specialties and other items with a beautiful statue of St. Joseph in the center. Items from the altar may be purchased with all proceeds going to the St. Ambrose School Tuition Fund to help families in need. There is also a buffet lunch and entertainment.
