"We hear a lot about change these days: climate change, change of pace, change is good," says Marcia Piemonte, director of events at the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii. "For the last several years, Mother Nature has made the weekend of our Festa di Tutti i Santi one of her hottest and stormiest of the summer. This year, a decision was made to change the date to Sept. 20. Change is good. We invite the entire community to attend."


Festivities will begin with a Unity Mass at 11 a.m. led by the Rev. Richard Fragomeni. Afterward, a procession featuring the Sicilian Band of Chicago and patron saint societies with banners will lead the assemblage from the Shrine to Arrigo Park.
