My Friends:

Thank you God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit and our Blessed Mother for a truly blessed "La Festa Italiana – 2019!" Mother Nature is first because the weather determines the outcome of the Feast. It can either make or break us. For fear of missing any specific names and offending anyone, other than Bishop Cruz joining us to celebrate Mass assisted by Fr. Bob McLaughlin, my thanks will be an "umbrella" thank you.  

The Feast does not just happen. It takes an entire year to plan and execute, with many meetings and decisions to make, as well as all of the work to bring it to fruition: meetings, necessary legal forms and documents to be completed, all sorts of permissions necessary to ensure safety for all from A to Z! Health and fire inspections, choosing our entertainment, working with the town and police, following all rules and regulations, securing patrons and donors and vendors, and volunteers to set up, break down, staff the booths, shop and prepare our home cooked foods and desserts, cutting checks, marketing, mailing and handling all the raffles, preparing the liturgies, etc., and the list goes on....

Simply stated, thank you to every single person who helped to make OUR FEAST, in honor of the Blessed Mother, a wonderful success! Thanks to everyone who showed up to celebrate with us! Thanks to everyone who joined us for Mass and the Procession!

I hope and pray that everyone who has participated in any way, shape or form is blessed in countless ways for your generous time, talent and treasure, offered as a witness to your faith. You are all good stewards!

God willing, we will have OUR FEAST again next year and more people will take seriously their responsibility as faithful stewards and jump on the Feast Train!!! T.E.A.M. - Together Everyone Accomplishes More!  

From a very grateful pastor, know that I am,

Loving you always,

Fr. Peter
