St. Joseph Altar at Vermilionville

Vermilionville Living History & Folk Life Park invites the public to visit its St. Joseph’s Altar on March 18, 2014. The altar will be open to the public from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm that day.

Originally an Italian Catholic tradition, the St. Joseph’s Altar made its way into local Cajun and Creole churches after WWI and WWII. The tradition is still practiced to this day where churches will erect an altar in honor of St. Joseph. Visitors to the Vermilionville exhibit will learn about the first altar erected in the town square of Sicily several centuries ago as well as what the items on present day altars represent. Visitors will also leave with a small bag of treats complete with a lucky fava bean.

Admission to the St. Joseph’s altar is part of the regular admission to Vermilionville. For more information about Vermilionville’s St. Joseph’s altar, visit Vermilionville.org or call (337) 233-4077.
