A Look at the 2017 Festa di San Cono da Teggiano in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

I joined my Teggianesi friends in Williamsburg, Brooklyn Sunday afternoon (May 28th) to celebrate the Grand Feast of their beloved patron, San Cono da Teggiano. Mass was celebrated in Italian by Fr. Vincenzo Chirichella in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, which is currently under renovation. It was great to see members of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St. George, the Societá Gioventú Quagliettana, the Our Lady of the Snow Society, Club Sassinese D'America and the San Rocco Society of Potenza, among others, come out and show their support.

After Mass, devotees processed with the statue through the neighborhood with much fanfare. After a couple of hours we returned to the San Cono Clubhouse (231 Ainslie St.) for a spectacular luncheon. Many thanks to President Rocco Manzolillo and all the members of the San Cono Society for their hard work and dedication. It is an honor and a privilege to celebrate our faith and culture with you. Special thanks to my friends Giorgio, Antoinette and their beautiful family for inviting us to break bread with them. We had a terrific time and look forward to celebrating again next year. Evviva San Cono!
