The Madonna Della Cava Society of Boston’s North End held their 98th annual feast on the weekend of August 10-12, 2018. The MDC society brought out the image of Maria SS Della Cava, Principal Patron of Pietraperzia, Sicily, and processed until dark throughout Boston’s North End.
The society honors Maria SS Della Cava, Principal Patron of Pietraperzia, Sicily. Her image was rediscovered miraculously in the year 1223 by a mute from Trapani who was directed by Our Lady to proceed to the outskirts of the town where her portrait would be found. In the process, his speech and hearing were restored. The first words emitted by the mute were, “VIVA MARIA SS DELLA CAVA.” Read more at the society’s website, MadonnaDellaCava.com.
