Noto and Acireale, Friday, 17 June 2016 – The Vice Delegate for Sicily, Nobile Dott. Antonio di Janni visited the diocesan dining hall of San Corrado in Noto, managed by Brother Rino who, together with other volunteers, cares for approximately 50 needy each day. The Delegation presented the center with food items for the dining hall and included it in its list of recipients for the Project “New Crumbs of Health”, ensuring their autonomy for approximately one month.
In the coming months the Grand Prefect, H.R.H. Princess Beatrice of Bourbon Two Sicilies, will visit the center and together with the Bishop of Noto, M.R.E. Mons. Antonio Staglianò, will develop an aid program for the poor of the diocese.
On that same day, the Vice Delegate also went to Acireale where he presented the Bishop, M.R.E. Mons. Antonino Raspanto with the diploma of Ecclesiastical Knight Commander of Grace. Together they then visited the San Giovanni Bosco Center, including it in the project “New Crumbs of Health”. The center is a community at the service of the poor that has been welcoming single mothers and families in difficulty since 1933, providing comfort and care to the less fortunate as well as training lessons, laboratories and courses to facilitate employment opportunities.
