Holy News

1. Pablo, a family friend who studied at the North American College in Rome and who very graciously gave us a personal tour of St. Peter's Square and Basilica when we were there two years ago, will be ordained a priest this weekend. His ordination will take place this Saturday at the Cathedral in Savannah, and Sunday he will celebrate his first Mass here in our church.

2. The documentation papers to have Sandro nominated for sainthood have been ceremoniously sealed by the Bishop of Verona and are en route to the Vatican. You can read his beautiful story here and here.

3. Sister Gaudiosa, the nun from Tanzania who has become a member of our family, will be visiting us again this August. You can read about last year's visit here and here and here.

Tizi- You, Luciano, and Chiara will actually get a chance to meet Sister since she will be arriving two days before you leave for Canada!
