Autumn activities in Italy

Despite daily difficulties, the activities of the members of the Grand Priory of Italy continue unabated.

  • On 2 October, a delegation of Knights took part in the celebrations in honour of the patron saint Michele Arcangelo in Piscopo (Vibo Valentia), Calabria Region.
  • In September, in response to a request from the Orthodox Church of Saints Filippo e Giacomo in Mortara (Pavia), the Lombardy Delegation provided clothing, food and blankets for distribution to the needy and cancer patients in need. 
  • Also in September, members of the Grand Priory of Italy joined in Ovada (Piedmont Region) in the Procession of Religious Confraternities and the Eucharistic Blessing by H.E. The Most Rev Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco.  

  • During August, some Confreres from the Calabria Delegation organised and held a course on airway narrowing and the Heimlich manoeuvre at the Parish of San Michele di Piscopo (Vibo Valentia).
