Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bautista were hosts at an annual St. Joseph Table. The event began 25 years ago while living in Lackawanna. At that time, friends from the area helped in the preparation of traditional food.
Over the years the Bautista family moved to Dunkirk and continued hosting the celebration. This year was very special and friends and family along with extended friends were invited. The dinner was held at the Masonic Temple of Fredonia. A beautiful altar to honor St. Joseph was constructed. The room was decorated with many flowers, balloons and candles.
Father Ray Donohue blessed the food.
