Important message regarding the cancellation of our September 13, 2020 Mass & Feast
We have been closely monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 virus and after careful consideration, and out of concern for the health and safety of all who would attend, we are canceling this year’s Buffalo Mass and Feast.
We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold our annual event, but we know it is the right decision based on the continued uncertainty of this virus and the information we have available today.
We look forward to celebrating with a great number of members of the Mussomeli Society next year, on our 90th Anniversary of the Buffalo Feast of our Lady of Miracles of Mussomeli, Sunday, September 12, 2021.
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.
