Photo Gallery: St. Joan of Arc brings all together for St. Joseph’s Altar

LAPLACE — St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church’s St. Joseph’s Altar Committee worked for months to bake cookies and to prepare items for their altar.

The altar was open to the public, and meatless meals were provided for donations.

All proceeds from the altar are being used to support Daughters of Divine Providence Yucatan Mission, Our Lady of the America’s Mexico Mission and St. Labre Indian School in North Dakota.

The students at SJA School visited the altar as well.

Students learned of the various symbols and elements of the altar then had the opportunity to offer prayers for special intentions.
