WELCOME ALL TO THE SAINT PETER’S NOVENA!

Come One, Come All! Everyone is welcome to the Novena to Saint Peter.

In honor of the 90th anniversary of Fiesta, all the saints that are honored in the Fiesta Sunday procession have joined Saint Peter on the altar at the American Legion Hall.

The Novena Ladies are Jeanne Marie Linquata (center), Caryn Ryder, Grace Cusumano, Ann Sanfilippo, and Faye Quinlan. The altar and the Legion Hall look especially, especially beautiful this year, thanks to the dedication of the Novena Ladies.

The Novena begins Monday, June 12th, at 7pm, and ends Tuesday June 20th, when Saint Peter will be returned to the club. The Novena Ladies would like everyone to know that all are welcome!
