St. Joseph’s Day 2011

by Nola

We headed to the St. Joseph altars today. My mother-in-law, exiled in Arizona, had asked that I get her a new St. Joseph’s medal since she lost hers in her move out of Ohio. That was excuse enough for us.

We visited three: St. Louis Cathedral (and joined the crowd for the meal prepared for the masses); St. Francis X. Seelos Church in the Bywater (hearing the name of St. Francis X. Seelos always makes me think of St. Mary’s Assumption which in turn makes me sad about its closing), and St. Joseph Church on Tulane Avenue (those pics of the heads at the base of the columns really drew me to them today).

My fave of the day? Easy–the Louis Prima memory cake at the Cathedral.

Enjoy the pics!
