The Mussomelese Society of Our Lady of Miracles of Western New York is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit organization. Every year, on the second Sunday in September, the society gathers to celebrate the miracle that occurred on September 8th, 1530 in Mussomeli, Sicily.

The annual feast of Our Lady of Miracles in Buffalo is the largest annual Italian-American religious celebration in Western New York. The Feast commemorates the healing of a paralytic through the intercession of Mary just outside the Sicilian town of Mussomeli. The local observance attracts hundreds of devotees of Mussomelese ancestry from Western New York, Rochester, and Southern Ontario.
