I made my annual pilgrimage to Most Precious Blood Church in Little Italy on Thursday (Sept. 19th) for the Feast of San Gennaro. As always, I had a great time with good friends. The atmosphere was festive and the food was delicious. It was a wonderful opportunity to venerate our great patron. Viva San Gennaro!
