Festal Late August

Festal Late August

The Feast of St. Rocco, celebrated every year in Glen Cove, L.I. NY, brings to the public old-fashioned hospitality in the form of traditional Italian meals and carnival games (it is now over).  The secret is the chefs, the women of the parish, who prepare months ahead for the seatings at their temporary restaurant.

It is worth a king’s ransom to dine at this carnival, so watch for it every late August.  St. Rocco (Roque in Spanish) hears all sorts of prayers for which he intercedes with a most gracious Son of God for a full answer.  Be a participant
