DESCRIPTION

In 2006, a group of men joined together and decided with passion and love, that it would be an honor to establish the celebration and tradition of paying tribute to San Paolino di Nola on Long Island. It was the commitment of these individuals, who forged a relationship with St. Patrick’s Church of Glen Cove.

Description

In 2006, a group of men joined together and decided with passion and love, that it would be an honor to establish the celebration and tradition of paying tribute to San Paolino di Nola on Long Island. It was the commitment of these individuals, who forged a relationship with St. Patrick’s Church of Glen Cove. Thankfully, the pastor of the church embraced this idea with a loving heart and the organization of “The Sons of San Paolino di Nola” was formed. The members of our organization come from all different areas of New York and our love for this tradition can be traced back to our families’ ancestry in Italy. Over the years, many of our members have crossed paths during other celebrations for San Paolino that were held in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - Astoria, Queens - Bronx, New York - East Harlem, New York - Cliffside Park, New Jersey and in its original home of Nola, Italy. Collectively, it is our vision and belief that this joyous occasion honoring an individual who sacrificed so much for the people of his hometown should be seen and heard by as many people as possible. We celebrate the feast of San Paolino by carrying a beautiful 70 foot structure on our shoulders in his honor. The Dancing of the Giglio, as it is known, is truly a wonderful sight to see and is enjoyed by men, women, and children alike. In 2011 a decision was made to move the Giglio feast to St. Catherine of Sienna RC Church located at 33 New Hyde Park Road in Franklin Square, NY. The many parishioners of this parish including its pastor Msgr. Richard Figliozzi are from areas around the birthplace of the Giglio, Nola, Italy and are very familiar with this tradition and have accepted us as one of their own. Last year’s turnout was amazing. We would also like to thank each and every one of you who have supported us. We hope we can count on your continued support for many years to come. The celebration of San Paolino and the Dancing of the Giglio is a time honored tradition that we hope will be carried on by our family and friends. Our feast dates are June 27th – July 1st. A schedule is listed below. Visit our web-site at www.sanpaolino.org for more information.
