A Lafayette family has set up a "Social Distance St. Joseph Altar."

Anyone who would like to can stop by the altar in the 300 block of Myrtle for a quick prayer.

The family says they will keep the altar up until around 7 p.m., or until it rains.

Today is the feast day for St. Joseph, who is considered the patron saint of the Catholic church.
