Dec 07, 2015 679

The feast of St. Lucy is December 13th and in Italy ushers in the Christmas season. In keeping with this long-lasting tradition, the Cultural Center will have a celebration at the Center on the feast day, Sunday, December 13th. The celebration will begin with the lighting of the Christmas Fire at 3:30 pm. This will be followed by a candlelight procession through the hall to the altar prepared for St. Lucy.

A memorial prayer service, honoring the memory of those who have been remembered through the Cultural center's Memorial/Foundation program, will then take place. There will be music and dancing, a sweets tasting table, and the sampling of the traditional Granno d'Santa Lucia with its various regional toppings. The gift shop and museum will be open, and there will be a bake sale of Italian sweets by the Italian Dancers.
