The Feast of St Peter begins each year with a 9 day religious novena, held at the American Legion Hall on Washington Street here in Gloucester. Each evening women of all ages…and a few men…gather for a nightly rosary, mainly done in Sicilian. Click links below for a to hear one of the oldest deep rooted Sicilian tradition’s still held in our beautiful community.
The St. Peter Rosary…
You may remember this song from past post relating to St Joseph Rosary this past March…It was my Uncle Mike Militello most favorite Novena Song Dell’Aurora. It has become our families favorite song…we can’t help but think of him each time we sing the chorus part of this song…
Peter Favazza writes~ This is what it’s all about. The statue of St. Peter who makes miracles happen …here I’m taking a picture with my cousin Sarah Favazza. Sarah’s father Salvatore Favazza bought the St Peter Statue over from Sicily 80 years ago.
I will be live blogging nightly from the St. Peter Novena and posting more photos and stories about this tradition over the next several days…keep checking back…Viva San Pedro!
