Parish S. Maria of the Cave


They began the celebrations for the Jubilee Parish for the first centenary of the institution of the Parish of Santa Maria Grotto.

The Jubilee began on Nov. 22, 2015 with the opening of the Jubilee Celebration presided by our Bishop. Leonardo Bonanno. Many people, with meditation, attended the event.

Great was also the participation and enthusiasm for the first events related to the Jubilee. On December 6, it took place the presentation of the book by Prof. Maria Giuditta Garreffa which tells the story of 100 years of life of the community remembering the faces and events that characterized them. On December 7, many people have been waiting for the opening of the photo exhibition to trace visually the most important events from 1916 to the present day. Finally, on December 8, after the evening mass, a river of burning candles accompanied the Madonna in her home.

During the year, the Parish will offer various opportunities for spiritual strengthen faith and many initiatives that will lead to a rediscovery of the Marian cult in which Praia finds its origins.
