The statue was kept in a chapel in St. Joachim's Church on Roosevelt Street. When St. Joachim's Was demolished, the statue was taken to St. Joseph's Church, where it remains enshrined to this day. The original statue is of magnificent artistic quality, made of Italian papier mach6. It weighs with its base over i00 Ibs. As the statue aged, Angela Carnevale the Treasurer of the St. Rocco Society and then its acting President and sole organizer decided to purchase the new statue, fearing the original price- less statue might be dam- aged while carrying it in the procession. For the last 25 years or so a duplicate statue has been used for the Feast and Procession. The original statue can be seen at the rear left of the Church of St. Joseph, 5 Monroe Street, New York, New York. The "Feast" statue is stored during the year and brought out and placed on the main altar under a special canopy for the week prior to the Feast. f "~ , " ~ 1 GENNARO S NorthSsquare ii II RI STORANTE 1 FINE ITALIAN DINING 5 NORTH SQUARE BOSTON'S NORTH END Tel: 617-720-1050 Under the new management of Gennaro who also brings you Caff~ Vittoria and Florentine Cafe J Mayor Menino's WEDNESDAYNIGHT Soul City kicks off the Wednesday Night Concerts.
