The first Sunday of June always brings the first Italian religious procession of the season to Boston’s North End, honoring Santa Maria di Anzano.  The 114 year old society held a Mass in Italian at St. Leonard Church followed by a lunch at St. Joseph’s Hall, the newly renovated function space under the church blessed just last week by the Cardinal. The society also awarded three scholarships to young members in the community, James Carmine Giso, Bianca Baldassaro and Victoria Hammond.
