Alba: On the Move from Parish to Parish

Each year, the FSPs of Alba visit various parishes of the diocese to renew subscriptions for the Gazzetta d’Alba and our own Pauline magazines.
This year, urged on by Pope Francis’ continual invitation to read the Word of God, our sisters spent the month of December not only carrying out this apostolic activity but also diffusing Bibles and Gospels wherever they went. In addition, so as to celebrate our FSP Centenary and the Year of Consecrated Life, they have enriched their visitation program by making Fr. Alberione and Maestra Thecla better known to everyone and also by visiting the families of our pioneer Paulines to express the Institute’s gratitude to them.

The first stop on their itinerary was the town of Cortemilia. Our sisters will continue their “pilgrimage to the parishes” during 2015 so as to help the people of the area get to know and appreciate the fruits of holiness and apostolate produced by the “alberone” (“big tree”) of the Pauline Family, whose roots are plunged deep in the soil of Alba.
