Earthquake in Italy

E-mail Print

Dear Confreres,

Following the recent catastrophic events, I wish to communicate that:

The Friars of L’Aquila are unhurt and doing well; to send badly needed food, since there is no gas available for cooking, contact the Minister Provincial of Abruzzo.

Regarding the other Friaries:

The church at Castelvecchio remains closed for safety reasons; the area of the Friary under the bell tower was evacuated because it was declared dangerous;

The church at Chieti was closed because of the dome, awaiting the decisions of the supervisors;

The Friary complex at Tagliacozzo is unharmed.

Have a good path toward Easter, and may God have pity on us.

Friar Robert Di Paolo
Secretary of the Province
