The Saint Rocco Fraternal Society of Malden was founded in 1929 in the Edgeworth Section of Malden, MA. It was founded by a group of Italian-Catholic Immigrants to become a beneficiary society for those local people inflicted with the flu. In August of 1929, the society started its annual Feast of St. Rocco which became a three day event to raise money to provide death benefits to those members families who lost their loved ones during the year. The tradition continues today and is comprised of over 30 men and women dedicated to the work of St Rocco, patron of illness. All of our funds are donated to local food pantries and non-profit organizations not having to be affiliated with any religious organization. This year we celebrate our 87th anniversary of the feast of St. Rocco. In 1973 St Peter's Church took over the failing society in order to keep the tradition alive. In 2001 St Rocco became its own 501 c 3 organization under its President Steven Ultrino The tradition lives on under the direction of the first woman President, Joyce Mover and TEAM St. Rocco. Viva San Rocco!
