Good News/Bad News for Our International Friends

One of the inspiring aspects of sharing the message of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati has been to hear from so many people around the world who are mutually devoted to him.  The FrassatiUSA website has been viewed by people in 160 countries!  Pier Giorgio's simple message -- that holiness is possible for everyone -- resonates around the world and that is awesome!  That's the good news.

Over the last several years, so many of you have written to request various resources about Pier Giorgio that you are unable to obtain anywhere else.  FrassatiUSA tried to fill the void and make materials accessible, despite the fact that our mission territory is really just the United States.   Unfortunately, because of a severe lack of funding, we are no longer able to provide resources to our international friends.  That's the bad news.  

There are, however, two organizations in Italy that you can contact whether you are inside or outside of the United States.  Both are under the direction of Wanda Gawronska, niece of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, whom many of you may know.  Here is the contact information:

Associazione Pier Giorgio Frassati (Rome)

Associazione Pier Giorgio Frassati (Torino)
Facebook:  Associazione Pier Giorgio Frassati Torino  

Wherever you are, may Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati intercede for you always.  Verso l'alto!
