The executives of Societá SS. Crocifisso and San Giovanni Bosco announce that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we feel we must postpone our Annual Feast for 2020 until 2021. This was a difficult decision but the safety and well-being of our volunteers, feast attendees, vendors, and suppliers was our first concern.

With state guidelines in mind, it would not be safe to bring large groups of people together early in June.

Below is a message from our President - Frank Faraci from Easter 2020.

We did not have our annual dinner dance on Saturday, March 14 at Belvedere Banquets.

We will provide more information soon.

Below is the video from the 2018 SS. Crocifisso & San Giovanni Bosco Feast.

We thank the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe for recording this and allowing us to share the video.
