Visit of the MG to the Chapter of Foggia
The Province of St. Michael the Archangel of Puglia and Molise, based in Foggia, began their Provincial Chapter on May 21 in San Giovanni Rotondo, next to the Shrine of St. Pio of Pietrelcina. The second day of the Chapter saw the presence of the Minister General, accompanied by Definitor-General, Br. Vincenzo Brocanelli, and his personal secretary, Br. Francisco Arellano.
After hearing the reports of both the Visitator-General and the outgoing Minister Provincial, the Chapter members heard the Minister General give them a specific message for the Province. The morning ended with a solemn celebration of the Eucharist in the crypt of the new shrine holding the remains of St. Pio in an environment rich with symbols and colors.
