This year, the restrictions caused by the pandemic prevented the various Delegations and their respective Vicariates from organizing the traditional Christmas events such as exchanges of greetings and festive gatherings.
Nevertheless, in many Delegations Dames and Knights gathered for prayer, virtual meetings and other gatherings, in strict compliance with the regulations in force. Thanks to technology, these moments were shared on social networks and the web, in the name of charity and the active presence of the Savoy Knightly Forces alongside the neediest.
Among them, we would like to mention the U.S. Delegation, which succeeded in launching a fundraising campaign with a virtual edition of the “Ballo di Savoia” to support charitable projects promoted in the U.S..

The Liguria Delegation was received in audience, on the occasion of the customary exchange of Christmas greetings, by the new Archbishop of Genoa, Mgr. Marco Tasca of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual, and the distribution of basic necessities continues without pause.
The Friuli Delegation donated toys and medical supplies to the “Santa Maria dei Colli” Institute in Tricesimo (UD).
The Lombardy Delegation delivered foodstuffs to the Friars Minor of Canepanova (Pavia) and made further donations to the Parish of Santa Maria del Carmine in Milan and the night nursery of the “San Vincenzo” charity in Monza.
Many other Delegations have done their utmost to bring the light of the Child of Bethlehem and the message of hope of the Lord’s Christmas to those who find themselves in situations of suffering and difficulty.
Please continue to follow us through our diary on this website to stay up to date on upcoming events and we look forward to returning to organizing face-to-face activities soon.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
