The 126th Annual Feast of Our Lady of Snow, patroness of Sanza (SA), kicked-off Sunday in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with a procession through the neighborhood and novena in honor of the Madonna della Neve at Saint Francis of Paola Church. After Mass we made our way back by candlelight to the society's hall for some lite fare and plenty of laughs. I would like to thank the members of the Our Lady of Snow Society, particularly Vincenzo and Teresa, for their warm and generous hospitality. As always, they did a terrific job.

The Feast Day of Our Lady of Snow will be celebrated on Tuesday, August 5th. The Procession will begin at 8:00AM from the society hall located at 410 Graham Avenue. Mass will be celebrated at 11:00AM at Saint Francis of Paola Church at 219 Conselyea Street. For more information please visit the Our Lady of Snow Society on Facebook.
