ENGLISH SPEAKING MISSIONARY DELEGATION
Our work in the United States involves three communities.
In New York we have two parishes served by three confreres. These parishes are situated near Central Park.
St Anne’s Parish serves the Hispanic and English-speaking communities, but people of many nationalities attend Mass there. This parish is situated in Haarlem and has a very good parish school run by a Sister Josephine.
St Francis de Sales Parish serves English and Spanish-speaking communities. It is near the large Mount Sinai hospital which is served from this parish.
Our nursing home in Jasper, Indiana was built in 1972, in the centenary year of Don Orione’s birth, but our presence in Jasper dates back to 1935 when Father Alexander bought the first property there, namely a huge Benedictine school. Sadly, now we only have one confrere in the area, Father Angelo and he belongs to the New York community.
Providence Home provides specialised care for older people and some special needs persons.

In Boston we have six confreres who run the following activities: a well-known shrine dedicated to Our Lady called ‘Madonna Queen of the Universe’, the Don Orione Nursing Home for older people and the nearby parish of St Joseph and St Lazarus. Sunday Masses at the shrine in Spanish and Portuguese are very popular with the local Hispanic and Brazilian communities, which also have various ministries, such as catechesis, welcoming, Eucharistic adoration. We are very much encouraged by the apostolate there, which we hope may lead to vocations in the future. The Nursing Home is in need of repair and we will need considerable funds in the future to restructure and modernise it.
