On Saturday, February 11, the Vice Delegate of the Sicilian Delegation, Dott. Antonio di Janni, together with Knights Matteo Bertino and Giuseppe Balsamo, was received by the Bishop of Piazza Armerina, H.M.R.E. Mons. Rosario Gisana, Knight Commander of Ecclesiastical Grace. During the meeting they drafted a program for the monthly project “Crumbs of Health” in the diocese and scheduled meetings with the senior citizens living in the Hospice “Boccone del povero”. They also planned an additional humanitarian activity to provide medical instruments to the clinic for the needy set up by the Diocese in Enna.
At the conclusion of the meeting the Vice Delegate gave the Bishop a letter from His Most Rev. Eminence Cardinal Renato Raffaele Martino, Grand Prior of the Constantinian Order. The letter accompanies and introduces the Pontifical Decree for Plenary Indulgence granted to the Constantinian Knights and Dames by His Holiness Pope Francis during the Order’s Jubilee celebrated in St. Peter’s Basilica in May 2016.
As part of the “Crumbs of Health” project items for infants were distributed that afternoon in the Church of S. Stefano in Piazza Armerina. The items included diapers, pastina, cookies, milk, homogenized food and more.
This wonderful initiative was then repeated in Acireale where the Vice Delegate, after meeting with H.E. Mons. Antonino Raspanti, Bishop of Acireale, organized a delivery of food supplies for the project “Crumbs of Health”.
