Fr. General and Fr. Miguel Giráldez have visited Campi Salentina, Fuorigrotta and San Carlo all’Arena, the three Piarists presences in southern Italy. In all of them, they had the personal dialogues and the community meetings, as well as the Eucharistic celebrations of the Patronage of Saint Joseph Calasanz.
In Campi, once again, it was possible to check the love for Saint Pompilio and Saint Joseph Calasanz. Fr. General encouraged the community to go ahead with all the pastoral work they are doing, especially through the sanctuary, and to continue giving the best for the boys who come to the Non-Formal Education that is carried out in our facilities.
At the Institute Scuole Pie de Fuorigrotta, a Calasanctian festival took place in which students, educators and families participated. They all transmitted to Fr. General their love for Pious Schools. Fr. General encouraged everyone to live by Calasanctian values, and to continue working for the future of the Institute. Fuorigrotta is a very appropriate place to promote the model of Piarist presence that is being developed in the Order. Fr. General encouraged everyone to work on this line. Fr. General thanked everyone, and especially the Director of the Institute, for his dedication to the Pious Schools.
Before leaving Naples for Rome they visited San Carlo all’Arena, to converse with the three religious of the community and to know the progress of the educational work that they carry forward.
