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 2013 Altar was a record breaker, with over 5,000 visitors and 146 offerings. There were 1,523 visitors on the March 19 feast day! I thank all who participated, making this a worthy honor to St. Joseph.
The Virtual St. Joseph Altar is entering its 16th year! 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 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 digitl 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.
