The International Community Lavalla200> of Syracuse, in Italy, has inaugurated on January 18 a new Center of help and intercultural orientation dedicated to the immigrant young people and refugees.

At the official opening of the International Center of Help and Orientation (CIAO) were present: the Archbishop of Syracuse Monsignor Salvatore Pappalardo; the members of the Marist Community; the Mayor of Syracuse and other representatives of the local institutions; Br. Claudio Begni, representing the Mediterranean Province; and other persons who collaborate with the Marist Mission.  

The Marist Community is at the service of the immigrants since 2016, and they arrived at the invitation of Mons. Salvatore Pappalardo, to form in the Diocese an institution to work in favor of the immigrants.   

The members of the Communityare Gabriel Bernardo da Silva, Mario Araya, Br. Onorino Rota, Regina Biasibetti, Br. Ricky Gomez and Rosa Maria Schiaffin.

Today, other associations, groups and persons collaborate with the Marist community; which desire to help the immigrants, who are young and have the right to international protection and unaccompanied foreign minors, with the objective of integrating them in the Italian society.    

In the Bulletin Syracuse News, Br. Onorino Rota stressed: “we are convinced that the faith of us six does not reach the levels attained by Father Champagnat, but if all of you help us with your prayer, it is sure that we will be able to do something beautiful for the Brothers and for God”.  

Through the inauguration of the Center to accept the immigrants, the Marists of Champagnat put into practice one of the calls of the XXII General Chapter, which asks, “to increase a significant presence among the children and young people in the margins of the world.

The Province of Syracuse, in Sicily, is an Italian place with the greatest flow of African immigration, which arrives to the island fleeing from their countries.
