Mar 05, 2024 231

The Historic BK House & Gardens is set to honor the Patron Saint of Sicily with its annual St. Joseph’s Altar on March 18th and 19th. Located at 1113 Chartres Street, BK House continues the sacred Sicilian tradition, once embraced by the Corrado Giacona Family from the 1890s to 1925.

The celebration begins with a private blessing of the altar by Father Damien Zablocki on March 18th, followed by public viewing and informative sessions on the 19th and 20th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors will receive traditional prayer cards, Italian cookies, blessed bread, and lucky beans, immersing themselves in the rich heritage of Sicilian culture. Donations in support of the altar are welcome, with contributions accepted via email at [email protected].
