The zeppoles and bread, shaped like a shepherd's hook, will be prepared by CIAO members, and all attendees will receive them. A small religious ceremony relating to the custom of the Tavola di San Guiseppe will precede the dinner: The statue of St. Joseph will be carried and placed on an altar, which will be decorated with traditional food items for the feast. The Rev. Lou Vasile will lead the ceremony.
