Pick up cookies for Santa at Our Lady of Grace
The St. Annâ€™s Sodality at Our Lady of Grace Church in Johnston has something special for anyone whoâ€™d like to leave cookies for Santa Claus.
This weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 22 and 23, the St. Annâ€™s Sodality will host its second annual Italian Cookie Bake Sale at Our Lady of Grace Church at 15 George Waterman Road in Johnston.
Vilma Zanni, who has been a member of Our Lady of Grace Church for 50 years and is president of the St. Annâ€™s Sodality group, said a variety of traditional Italian cookies will be on sale before and after all masses on Saturday and Sunday.
Zanni said the masses at OLG are held Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday morning at 8:30 and 10:30.
â€śOur parish has a rich Italian-American heritage,â€ť Zanni said. â€śSt. Annâ€™s Sodality is known for its baking skills. The tradition and heritage and those skills will make up this weekendâ€™s Italian Cookie Bake Sale.â€ť
St. Annâ€™s Sodality is taking orders for trays of their handmade cookies. To pre-order, call 213-6408. Celia Zanni, Vilma Zanniâ€™s daughter-in-law, is chairing the event, which is open to the public.
