The Sisters of Saint John the Baptist, based in the Bronx and working in both New York and New Jersey, invite all to celebrate with them the canonization by Pope Francis, on October 16th, of Alfonso M Fusco, founder of their Congregation.
As a young priest in Angri, Italy, Fr Fusco was inspired by God in the late 1800s to alleviate the plight of poor and abandoned boys and girls. With the help of four young women, a small house was opened to feed, clothe and shelter the many children. His great trust in Divine Providence made possible the growth of the ministry as well as that of the young Community of Sisters dedicated to this task.
Today they are present in 18 countries around the world, and still ministering in various ways to the poor and abandoned, especially through education and care for the elderly. Fr Fusco has promised to pray for and to be present to the Community always. Many graces and blessings have been received through his intercession. You are invited to pray to him as well, who said that he “wished that even his shadow might do good.” St Alfonso Maria Fusco, pray for us.
