On July 16, 2010 the village of Nocelle, a small hamlet located on the Positano’s hills is going to celebrate the first centenary of the arrival of statue of the Virgin Mary in its church. For this occasion the entry community has organized a special event that will last one week till July 17, 2010.A votive candle has been lit in memory of the first centenary and the “Garments of Carmelo” were blessed and given to the faithful at the end of the Holy Mass (the tradition of the “Garments of Carmelo” in Nocelle is very rooted amongst the townspeople, particularly the women and girls who sew these garments throughout the year). On the occasion of the centenary year, Marian calendars were distributed during the Christmas season.
The event will reach its moment of greatest intensity on the days of 16-17 July with musical performances, traditional lights and stands that will make happy children and adults.
The community of Nocelle invites everyone to take part of this historic event wishing to spend a great time together in honor of the Virgin Mary.
