The feast of Saint John of God

in 1588 was made in Troy the Hospital of St John of God Hospitaller Brothers, from which originated the cult of Saint John of God, founder of the Order, who later became the patron of the city. The 8 March of each year, a procession is held much felt by the citizens, especially because the Saint venerated is patron of the sick, hospitals, then of health. The veneration of the holy is so felt that to bring to shoulder the same takes place in the days preceding a real race, with extraction of lucky bearer, which in turn chooses the team that will lead the holy. The team, chosen in turn, will give a contribution that will be in favor of the Hospice. In procession is also brought a fragment of the arm of the holy.
