Twinning of Peace and Faith


Cascia-Buenos Aires, April 22 to May 22

For the 58th edition of the Twinning which sees the Town of Cascia unite with another of the towns of the world devoted to Saint Rita, the city of Pope Francis has been chosen.

The process starts with the official visit of a Cascia delegation to Buenos Aires, from April 22 to 28.

To seal the union of the two peoples in the name of Rita, the Argentine delegation, led by the Oblates of the Virgin Mary of the Sanctuary of Saint Rita in Buenos Aires, will be hosted in Cascia for the celebrations of St Rita, from May 20 to 22, during which the Torch of Peace, which started out in the Latin American city, will conclude its journey when it arrives in the churchyard of the Basilica of Saint Rita in Cascia on the evening of May 21.
