It’s Almost here!!!

our 27th Annual Italian Festival . . .

May 16 – 18, 2024

Our patron, Saint Philip Neri, known as the “Apostle of Joy,” set an example for us as we show and share our happiness in God’s abundance and love.  We have been very fortunate for the 27 years that we have sponsored our festival, and it is our great pleasure to extend that celebration to include the whole community.  We hope that you and your families, and friends too, will experience the joy that our festival offers.  We have planned 3 incredible days and nights of non-stop festivities.  Arguably, the best part of any festival is the food, and the Italian Festival delivers!  More than 20 different festival favorites and specialties are there for your tasting!  We look forward to seeing you!  BENVENUTI!



Welcome to our 27th Annual Italian Festival!  With a joyful spirit, our parishioners, our families, and our community will gather to cook, eat, drink, dance, sing and show everyone how to be an Italian at heart!           Please join us! ~ Fr. Fabio Refosco, C.O.
