Pier Giorgio trivia

Today is the feast of St. Fabian and St. Sebastian -- two great early martyrs for the Faith. These saints play a small role in Pier Giorgio's life story. One of the churches in the town of Pollone, Italy -- where the Frassati summer villa is located -- is named for these two saints. However, the locals refer to the church as the "Cangio church" because of its location. This church was the site of the completion of Pier Giorgio's baptism. Inside, a large reproduction of the baptismal certificate hangs on the wall. You can check out pictures of this church on the FrassatiUSA website by clicking here.
