Description: As various Italian immigrants settled in Lawrence at the turn of the century, they brought with them the dialects, culture and traditions of the many regions and villages from which they came. Many of the Sicilian immigrants from the towns in the Province of Catania, especially from the area around Trecastagni, maintained their particular devotion to the three martyred brothers, Saint Alfio, Saint Filadelfo and Saint Cirino. As their numbers increased, they set about the task of organizing an association, the primary purpose of which was to establish the tradition of honoring these patron Saints in this new community.

Title: Bread and Roses Heritage Festival

Description: The Bread & Roses Heritage Committee (BRHC) is dedicated to the presentation of an annual free music and cultural festival. Through the collective actions of like-minded individuals throughout the Lawrence community, the committee was established in 1986 and has been active ever since. BRHC was established to keep alive and honor the memory of the great Lawrence textile workers' strike of 1912, popularly known as the "Bread and Roses Strike." BRHC accomplishes this through a program, The Bread and Roses Heritage Festival, that celebrates Lawrence's many cultures, both past and present, and to remember the labor movement's struggle for things we take for granted today.
