Casa Italiana

Cena di San Giuseppe

Friday, March 22nd, 6pm

Casa Italiana of Nazareth College invites you to join us to celebrate la Festa di San Giuseppe, Saint Joseph's Day. We are opening our doors to thirty (30) guests for a fabulous dinner which will be cooked for us by our chefs Tina Mogab and Bob Calcagno.


In Sicily and in many Italian-American communities, thanks are given to San Giuseppe for preventing a famine in Sicily during the Middle Ages. According to legend, there was a severe drought at the time, and the people prayed for their patron saint to bring them rain. They promised that if God answered their prayers through San Giuseppe's intercession, they would prepare a large feast to honor him. The rain did come, and the people of Sicily prepared a large banquet for their patron saint.


Cost: $50 per person or $85 per couple


Given the limited amount of space in the Casa's lounge, we will honor the first 30 people who contact the Casa Italiana at 585-389-2468.
