St. Joseph's Table

March 19, 2017

12:30 to 3 p.m.

Join in a traditional Italian Feast day and be one of the first to step back in time with You Are There 1943: Italian POWs at Atterbury, where the Italian prisoners are putting the finishing touches on the chapel they've built with permission from the camp commander. Take part in an observance that the POWs would have shared because it reminded them of home.

As the patron of workers and the protector of the family, Saint Joseph is one of the most beloved saints among Italian-Americans. According to legend, Sicilian villagers prayed to St. Joseph many centuries ago to ask for his intercession during a famine, and their prayers were answered. A special feast of thanksgiving was held, which has become tradition.
