The Family Altar or Saint Joseph Altar

Saint Joseph tenderly holds the Christ Child at the height of the altar. He is flanked by Saints Joachim (father of Mary) and Anne (mother of Mary). Saint Anne is shown with the young Mary.

There is an inset at the bottom of the altar detailing the death of Joseph.

This altar is a favorite place for the entire family to gather to pray. Many pray for the health of their children. Also, many newlywed couples go in front of this altar to pray for their home to be blessed with children.
