Rely on the Madonna del Soccorso
The protection of the village is entrusted to Our Lady of the Immaculate, in Canna the devotion to the Madonna del Soccorso is very much alive, probably in the second half of the seventeenth century.
The holy statue is carried in procession by the devotees on the first Sunday after August, the day after the procession of San Rocco.
