The 4th annual celebration of the Festa di San Guiseppe (Feast of St. Joseph)/St. Parick’s Day Party hosted by seminary Vice-Rector of Pastoral Formation, Fr. Ken Brighenti, was held on Saturday evening, March 16. As in previous years, many friends and family of Fr. Brighenti traveled to the seminary from New Jersey, Connecticut, and elsewhere to assist him in hosting the party. In keeping with the tradition of a St. Joseph Table, there was plenty of cheese pizza, St. Joseph pastries, Italian cookies, Reggiano Parmegiano cheese, Italian bread and olive oil, prosciutto di parma, as well as homemade wine. The annual party, which began at 5:30, is one of the highlights of the year among many of the seminarians who look forward to Fr. Brighenti’s generosity in sharing his Italian heritage with others. The evening would not have been possible without the generous support of a number of people, most notably Drs. Burkhard, who donated the St. Joseph Pastries, Dr. Frauenhoffer, who donated the cookies, Mr. Louis Falconeri, who donated the bread, cheese, and olive oil, Mr. Mario DeFilippis and Mr. Ciro Maddaluna, who brought their homemade wine, and Ms. Ann Louise Bongiovi and Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Tardiff, who provided the cold cuts and pizza.
