A Benevolent Society Organized By Immigrants and Their Descendants From Cefalù, Sicily
Di Mutua Beneficenza Cefalutana
The Società Italiana di Mutua Beneficenza Cefalutana was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana, on June 19, 1887. The original purpose of the Società Cefalutana was for mutual benefit (Mutua Beneficenza) of the many immigrants who came from Cefalu`. Thanks to their efforts, and those who followed them, the ideals of the Società have not changed. Although the benefit of burial in the Società mausoleum and the celebration of the feast of Gesù Salvatore are our main function, the Società today provides an opportunity for social interaction and sharing of our common heritage.
