The Feast of the Three Saints is held every year in Silkwood, Australia. The Feast brings people together, in celebration, from all over North Queensland and beyond, occurring on the first Sunday in May.
In the Year 2000 we celebrated, in Italian and English, our 50th Anniversary and, to mark the occasion, a 50th Anniversary Book was produced, which can be purchased online. Through the years a number of photographs have been collected and these are displayed in the Photo Gallery.
On Sunday, 7st May, 2023 the Saints will celebrate 73 years in Australia…
Everyone is welcome to attend.
