In March, Juan Diego Catholic High School students and faculty celebrated a centuries-old Italian tradition, honoring Saint Joseph, the school’s patron saint. To go along with the tradition that originated in Sicily as a way for peasant Italian communities to give food to the less fortunate among them, the Juan Diego Catholic High School community gathered more than 10,000 cans of food, seen here sorting the food, and raised $12,000 earmarked for Catholic Community Services.
