With the poor on the roads of the world

S. Egidio immagine 2

On May 28 in Rome, at Santa Maria in Trastevere, an event was held entitled "With the poor on the streets of the world", organized by the Community of Sant Egidio.  It was an opportunity to thank all the religious congregations that are collaborating with them.

Among the stands set up for the occasion, with the purpose of presenting the various community engagement programs, were about 200 religious from various religious congregations. Some of them were invited to share their experiences of collaboration with the Community of Sant'Egidio.

This event was attended by some members of the international community and, representing the General Administration, Sister Maria Grazia Boccamazzo, General Secretary.  She shared the welcoming experience of a Syrian family that arrived in Italy, thanks to the humanitarian corridors.  The family is currently hosted by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ at the Generalate.
