The St. Joseph’s Table was the centerpiece of the luncheon. Traditionally, food is given to the poor and hungry as a tribute of St. Joseph, whose feast day is March 19. Members of the St. Joseph Senior Social Club collected the food to be given to the Greater Pittston Food Pantry at St. John the Evangelist Church, Pittston.
St. Joseph’s Senior Social Club celebrated its ninth annual St. Joseph’s Table luncheon March 21 at St. Joseph Marello Hall. The annual celebration is an Italian custom held to commemorate the Feast of St. Joseph. The senior social club normally meets at 1 p.m. the third Thursday of the month at the church banquet hall. The April meeting is a week earlier due to the Easter holiday.
