The M.S.S. Lodge of Norristown celebrated the Feast of their patroness Maria Santissima del Soccorso di Sciacca on Aug. 12 and Aug. 13 at Savior Hall in Norristown.
The Norristown Lodge originated 119 years ago to help poor Italian immigrants who entered Norristown at the turn of the century. The society’s founders named the organization after the Madonna, and promised to continue the centuries old tradition
in their new community in Norristown. The M.S.S. Feast is the oldest Italian Feast in Montgomery County.
