St. Joseph's Feast Day and Parish Celebration
The church hall opens at 9am on March 19th for viewing the Altar.
Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 6pm, followed by the Tupa Tupa.
(The Tupa Tupa, which means Knock-Knock, is a procession that reenacts the Holy Family searching for food and shelter. Six children from St. Joseph and St. Rose of Lima Church parishes are dressed as the Holy Family and Saints who knock on 3 doors. At the 3rd door, they are finally allowed food and shelter, in the hall).
Following Mass and the Tupa Tupa, the Holy Family enters the hall, the altar is blessed, and the feast begins! Delicious catfish courtbouillon is then served to all who attend.
