The St. Mary’s Feast Society is the largest unaffiliated Catholic society in Rhode Island and has about 600 members, one of whom is Rudy Giuliani. The society is a non-profit strictly religious organization and depends on fundraisers and contributions of its members to support the Feast. The Feast has great historical significance and is a celebration of faith and devotion to the Madonna. The St. Mary’s Feast will continue through the weekend culminating on Sunday with an honorary mass, a parade, and a fireworks display.
