THE Sunraysia community enjoyed a traditional Italian feast of cannoli, pasta and zippoli at yesterday’s 57th Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary in Red Cliffs. 

The feast day takes place in honour of a 16th century naval victory which saved Europe from Turkish invasion. 

Each year, the community comes together in celebration of Our Lady of the Rosary, who Christians believe answered their prayers to help overcome the invaders.
