Celebrate Christmas at the Italian Church in Washington, DC

To be Italian in the Washington, DC metro area one must frequent the only Italian Church in town, Holy Rosary Church.  My husband and I were blessed to be married in this beautiful jewel and both of our girls were baptized here.  Step inside this Italian masterpiece of mosaics, carvings and frescoes and immediately escape to bell'Italia.  The warmth, authenticity and history of Holy Rosary Church is what every Washingtonian Italian needs to fill their soul over the holidays.  Save the date for these two special events:
Annual Advent Service of Lessons and Carols on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 4 p.m., Holy Rosary Church with an Italian reception of light refreshments immediately following.  This service is dedicated to all of the Holy Rosary Church volunteers who selflessly give of their time and talent throughout the year; and the Annual New Year's Eve Dinner Dance on Tuesday, December 31, 2019, Casa Italiana; The cost is $80.00 per person and includes a complete buffet dinner, an evening of dancing to live music and festivities, and a toast at midnight.  Paid reservations must be made by December 22.  Doors open at 7 p.m.  The event will be preceded by Holy Mass at 6:00 p.m. in honor of the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God.  Buon Natale!

Holy Rosary Catholic (Italian) Church is located on ​595 Third Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001
