Volunteers who have been building a St. Joseph’s Altar at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church for more than two decades recently announced that this year’s celebration honoring St. Joseph has been canceled due to continuing concerns about the possible spread of the coronavirus.

Rosie Moak, who has chaired the erection of the altar and the extensive amount of food prepared in connection with the observance, said, “It was with a great deal of regret that the decision was made to cancel the St. Joseph’s Altar and the traditional meal that was served to the public the day the altar was blessed.
