On 2 February 2019, the Sicily Delegates for the Vicariate of Agrigento – Caltanissetta – Enna of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, met to participate in a Eucharistic celebration officiated by the resident priest of the ancient Church of St. Joseph in Catenanuova, Rev. Don Nicola Ilardo, took place to honour the Blessed Maria Cristina of Savoy. In 2015, a votive painting of the Reginella Santawas donated to this church by Cav. Uff. Angelo Calì, who supervised the organisation of the event.
The celebration was held in the presence of various authorities, including the Vice-Mayor of Catenanuova, and several Guards of Honour who came from all over Sicily.
At the end of the celebration, all participants – in particular the Dames and Knights of the Orders – gathered together at a charity luncheon on church premises, thus contributing to a donation to support the Parish.
Thanks to the generous contribution of two Sicily Delegates, a large donation was made in favour of the Onlus Albero Della Vita, https://www.alberodellavita.org/, which manages services for the protection of disadvantaged children such as reception communities, foster family networks and maternity support services.
