Holy Cross Heritage

“Celebrating Sicilian Heritage”

Founded in 1911 by a local group of men and women who migrated from Santo Stefano di Camastra, in the Province of Messina, on the island of Sicily, the Holy Cross Society continues to share many of the same cultural traits and traditions of their ancestors.

Today, many of the decedents of the original founders and additional families continue the Sicilian traditions and celebrate their heritage at an annual festival.
