SS Crocifisso & San Giovanni Bosco Ciminna (Chicago) 2020 Feast Mass

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

The Societá SS. Crocifisso & San Giovanni Bosco Annual Feast for 2020 and 2021 were unique due to the Covid-19 pandemic and state guidelines. The safety and well-being of our volunteers, feast attendees, vendors, and suppliers is our first concern.

We are grateful to have celebrated special Masses and share one of the videos with you.

We are hopeful for a return to our traditional celebrations soon.

Viva SS. Crocifisso & San Giovanni Bosco!

We did not have our annual dinner dance in March 2020 or March 2021.
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.
