At Easter, the members of the Grand Priory of Italy were mindful of the needy, the suffering and the little ones. The Dames and Knights of the Grand Priory distributed Easter doves to them as a sign of solidarity and friendship. The colomba di Pasqua, or “Easter dove” is recognised across Italy as a sign of spring and is Easter’s counterpart to the Christmastime panettone and pandoro.

The attached photos illustrate the donation made at the home for the relief of suffering located in S.Giovanni Rotondo (Foggia - Puglia). This important and advanced Hospital (health facility) was created and inaugurated in 1956 by Saint Pio of Petralcina, thanks above all to the contributions of the faithful.
