Fontana Family St Joseph Novena 2011- Must Watch Videos

I think you will really enjoy watching the videos that I’ll be putting out each day this week from the first five houses along the route of the Novena Crawl.  From the walking up the staircase and listening to the warm greetings in the Fontana house all the way through the fifth house at the Orlandos you hear of special traditions spoken from the mouths of the women who have been celebrating for generations.  Again I wish I could have made it to all 11 houses but my little ones were up way past their bed time.  I’m sure Manny will be releasing some fantastic footage from the remaining houses as well.

We start off at the first house on Sefatia’s Novena Crawl through the City at The Fontana House.  Tomorrow look for The Scola Novena, followed by the Russo, Ferrrante and Orlando Houses. One a day til we are out of footage.  Thank you to all the families for welcoming us into your homes and sharing this wonderful tradition.

      Thanks Melissa.
      Every one of the houses there are stories and memories. There will be five videos of mine plus I know Manny got some great stuff which he will be putting out as well. Tomorrow’s video features the Scola house and she tells a very touching story.

    That’s a wonderful video. I’m so glad this tradition is being carried on. I’m not Italian but St. Joseph is also the patron saint of carpenters. My father was a carpenter (and his middle name was Joseph) and every year he took the day off on March 19th. He’d go to Mass and then just stay home out of respect for St. Joseph. I always remember him on this day.

    Thank you Joey. I look forward to watching (and learning) the rest.
