General Italian-American Traditions St. Joseph

St. Joseph Day is around the corner. Ready, Set, Go!

Every March 19th New Orleans Catholics celebrate St. Joseph’s Day by constructing elaborate altars to honor the relief St. Joseph provided during a famine in Sicily. The tradition began in the late 1800’s when Sicilian immigrants settled in New Orleans.
