Giacomo Pizzi30 September 2014

The new headquarters of Association pro Terra Sancta has been officially inaugurated in Milan. The new premises, located in the monastery on the piazza Sant’Angelo, was blessed by padre Francesco Bravi, Provincial Superior of the Order of Friars Minor of Milan.

Present at the blessing on Friday 26 September were fra Renato Del Bono, guardian of the monastery, and fra Francesco Ielpo, the Commissariat of the Holy Land for Lombardy, along with a number of collaborators and friends of the Association. The simple ceremony opened with the reading of several excerpts from the Bible focusing on the dignity of work and its importance.

Thanks to the large space granted by the Franciscan fraternity of the Ambrosian Diocese, the new headquarters will be of particular help to the Association in carrying out its activities throughout Italy in support of the Custody of the Holy Land.
