Cascia, October 21 and 22

Dear friends, the General Meeting of the Saint Rita Primary Pious Union has been moved from April to October, due to the consequences of the earthquake.

This year, therefore, the appointment (open to all, including non-members) will be in Cascia on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2017.The theme is “God obeys the obedient” and will guide us in prayer and reflection.

This will be also the occasion to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the PPU. The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, October 21

  • 10:00 - Conference in the Hall of Peace with Don Angelo Longo
  • 11:30 - Meeting of PPU leaders with the nuns
  • 15:00 - Visit to the urn
  • 17:00 - Torchlight procession with the Ritian statue of Campofranco (starting from the statue donated by Lebanon)
  • 21:45 - Adoration with the nuns and new affiliations (each group will bring a vase of earth from their land, which will be offered to Saint Rita as a sign of vicinity to the land of Cascia). For worship, we have asked the nuns for the relic of the heart of Mother Teresa Fasce, given that this year marks the 20th anniversary of her beatification; at the end of adoration, we will recite together the prayer to the Blessed Fasce.
