The Church May Close, But the Festa Will Go On

Despite a possible closure, the parish community of St. Rocco in Dunmore, Pa. celebrates the shared heritage of the Bunker Hill neighborhood.

Over one hundred years ago, a group of Italian immigrants arrived in what is now known as the “Bunker Hill” section of Dunmore, Pennsylvania. These immigrants came from the small Southern Italian town of Guardia dei Lombardi, located east of the city of Naples in the Province of Avellino.
