From Little Italy to Big Easy

Organizers at the Feast of San Gennaro on Mulberry St. collected money last Saturday for St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The annual festival has taken place every September in Little Italy since 1926. The feast was started by immigrants from Naples to celebrate the day in 305 A.D. when Saint Gennaro died as a martyr for the faith.
