The third-grade students of St. Ann School in Metairie were on hand for the blessing of the St. Joseph’s Altar in the school’s cafeteria on March 18.

In the spirit of feeding the poor, students brought nonperishable food items to donate to the St. Ann food pantry.

Every student received a special prayer card and a fava bean after their visit to the altar.
