Italian Delegation had the official opening and blessing of a new house in SS. Nome di Gesu Parish in Turin on 2 February 2017, officiated by Fr. Roberto Populin and assisted by Fr. Guido. Immediately after the blessing ceremony, Sr. Marta Rosario, the Superior of Italian Delegation introduced Sr. Leena Piholi, the in-charge to Fr. Roberto, the Parish Priest, Fr. Guido and the Parishners present on the occasion. Sr. Marta thanked Archbishop Nosiglia Cesere, Fr. Domenico and Fr. Roberto and others who supported the Delegation to get the place.
Opening a centre at Turin was one of the desires of the Congregation since its inception in Italy. Though several attempts were made it came to a proper consensus only when the invitation came from the Diocese of Turin to collaborate in the city parish of SS.Nome di Gesu.
It was on the same day the Italian delegation had the celebration of Sr. Marta Rosario’s taking over of the office for the second term as the Superior of the Delegation along with the new team of Councillors.
