The Feast of St. Joseph with the traditional Tavolata di San Giuseppe on

Tuesday March 19, 2019. Mass @6:00 PM followed by Tavolata in Cabrini Hall.

According to the legend, there was a famine in Sicily many centuries ago. The villagers prayed to St. Joseph,
foster father of the Infant Savior, and asked his intercession before the throne of God. Their prayers
were answered with the ending of the dreadful famine. A special feast of thanksgiving was held in commemoration
of the Saint. Wealthy families prepared huge buffets, they then invited the less fortunate people of the village,
especially the homeless and the sick to partake in the meal. This celebration became the tradition now known
as Joseph’s Table or La Tavolata di San Giuseppe. We invite everyone to participate in the SHSS Tavolata
by bringing a specialty dish of your own on 3/19. Contact Concetta Lo Presti-Mazzella with any questions
or if you would like to help. 917 364-7421
