St. Joseph Altars
Today is St. Joseph's Day, and in New Orleans many Italian families celebrate by making beautiful altars in their homes. Many churches also have elaborate altars for St. Joseph today too. There's also a parade to honor him in the French Quarter.
If you'd like to know more you can get this beautiful book HERE
It's by a local writer and photographer Kerri McCafferty.
It's filled beautiful images and a charming text. Unless you live in New Orleans, or are here visiting and get to a local New Orleans bookstore, it's a hard-to-find book.
If you love New Orleans history and culture, you will want this book.
