Italian Church Festivals.

Post by C_Artale » 14 Sep 2016, 16:51

Do you have Italian church festivals or feasts where you live? Do you attend?

We have several annual events here in Utica, NY. Including the upcoming pilgrimage and feast of Sts. Cosmas and Damian. Many busloads of Italian-Canadians come to attend, and also many attendees travel from throughout the Northeast.

This year is the 104th annual.

I live in Italy. In my city, we have a church/neighborhood feast nearly every week from May to October and we see and hear fireworks all summer long.

Hi! I live in New Jersey and we have many Italian Church Festivals. I usually go to two every year. St. Ann Church in Hoboken and the Hoboken Italian Festival.

St. Ann's Church on Jefferson Street has the best zeppole that sometimes the line is a block and a half long. They are the very best because the women of St. Ann's Guild makes them. Here is the link to the feast:

The Hoboken Italian Festival is a feast of the Madonna dei Martiri from St. Frances Church in Hoboken. This is also a wonderful feast that is located in Sinatra Park right on the Hudson River. The procession starts at St. Frances Church and goes to the river. They put the Madonna on a boat and she goes up the Hudson River to where the feast is located where she blesses the harbor. They then walk her up the feast. Here is the link to the feast:

If anyone is traveling to New Jersey this would be two great feasts to attend.

It is hoped that the research I am doing helps to discover, preserve and celebrate my family history.

Also in NJ- the feast of St. Gerard at St. Lucy's in Newark. My family has been attending/serving since 1913. Newark was the first "Little Italy" with over 30k Italians in one square mile at its biggest point. St. Lucy was the ward's church, and it is the national shrine of St. Gerard. It used to be much bigger, but it is still worth going to.
