The 53rd annual 12th Night Festival will be held Saturday, Jan. 11, chaired by Gene and Bernadette Scapin with a committee of parishioners of the Catholic Community of Pittsfield.
A 5:30 p.m. Epiphany Liturgy at St. Joseph Church will be immediately followed by a dinner/reception at the Itam Lodge 564 on Waubeek Road.
Music at the reception will be provided by DJ Rob Dwyer, and a coffee service with homemade Italian cookies will be offered at 10:30 p.m. Walter LaPierre will act as master of ceremonies at the dinner celebration.
Among the concelebrants of the Mass will be Monsignor Michael Shershanovich, the Rev. Geoffrey Deeker, and deacons, the Rev. Mr. Pasqual Baldasaro and the Rev. Mr. Sean Mullholland.
Included in the Epiphany Liturgy will be the portrayal of the Three Kings and pages who will present the gifts at the altar. Carols in Italian, Polish and French will be sung before Mass in recognition of the diverse population of the parishioners.
All are welcome, but tickets must be purchased by Jan. 3 at the rectory of St. Joseph Church.
