THE BEST PASTA IS SAINT JOSPEH’S PASTA!

As is done in many homes throughout the community, Saint Joseph pasta is served at the Groppo’s home with traditional Saint Joseph sauce (the main ingredients are fava beans and cauliflower), or with Nina’s homemade jarred tomato sauce. Everyone is always welcome at the Groppo’s Feast of Saint joseph and well over one hundred pounds were made to severe well over several hundred dinners. Viva San Giuseppe!

Novena Ballerina

Madison’s grandmother Geri informs that this was Madison’s idea on how to dress for the Novena! I think it perfect, her colors coordinate beautifully with Nina and Jane’s vibrant pink and orange altar roses.Madison Groppo Novena Gloucester Feast of Saint Joseph -1 Kim SmithMadison Groppo Novena Gloucester Feast of Saint Joseph -2 Kim SmithDSCF8505Waltz of the Flowers

Happy Father’s Day! And Happy Saint Joseph’s Day!

Beginning in the early 1900s, the American Father’s Day was brought to Italy, a sort of reverse sharing of holidays! Fittingly, in Italy, Father’s Day is celebrated on Saint Joseph’s Day.
