Religious occasion: The Feast of St Donato will be celebrated in Tatura next month.

Mass will be co-celebrated by parish priest Father Michael and Father Vito Pegolo from Melbourne, and will be held at 10 am.

The St Mel’s choir will be on hand to assist with the celebrations.

The mass will be followed by a smorgasbord luncheon at Tatura Italian Social Club from noon, and entertainment will be provided by Mick Tenace.

Spokesperson Joe Gagliardi said there would be great raffle prizes to be won on the day, and all profits from the Festa would be donated to Tatura and district community groups and other charities.

‘‘The cost of the luncheon is $35 per adult and $10 per youth (5-12 years),’’ he said.
