ST. ZITA – Patron of Servers/Waiters
When Zita was 12 she went to work for the Fatinelli family of Lucca, where she was known for her unwavering kindness and generosity. Fully committed to her faith, she would often spread food to those in poverty. Despite the ire of her masters and coworkers, she was eventually placed in charge of the house and remained there until she passed away.
