Providence College celebrated the feast of San Gennaro, or Saint Januarius, the Patron Saint of Naples, outside of St. Dominic Chapel on Wednesday, September 18. The event itself honored both Itaian heritage and Catholic tradition.  Little Italy’s Feast of San Gennaro in New York City celebrates the patron saint of Naples with an 11-day festival in September.

The festival is located on Mulberry Street, and has cannolis, fried dough, pizza, and other Italian foods. PC recognized the historic event by providing catered food to celebrate Italian heritage and the patron saint from Italy.
