The Annual Feast of Our Lady of Loreto, patroness of the town of Vallelunga Pratameno, Italy will again be celebrated Sunday, September 26th at St. Anthony's Church, 160 Court St. in downtown Buffalo (behind City Hall).
Following the 11:15 bilingual Mass, all family members and friends are invited to a free reception and reunion for the "Vallelunghesi" or descendants of Vallelunga.
Hundreds of immigrants from the central Sicilian town settled in Buffalo in the early 20th century and soon organized themselves as the Society of Our Lady of Loreto, celebrating the feast since 1905.
