Canonization of Blessed Guido Maria Conforti

Dear brothers

It is with great joy that we inform you that, on 23 October 2011, Pope Benedict XVI will canonize our Founder, Blessed Guido Maria Conforti.

The Founder’s canonization has a very important meaning for the Congregation, for each one of us, our friends and benefactors, for the Xaverian sisters, the lay people for whom Conforti is a reference point and for the entire Church too. Through his canonization, the human, Christian and missionary life of Conforti is offered as a model to every Christian, priest, bishop and, in a special way, to us, his sons.
