Come and learn more about the life of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, an Italian saint for our times, who sought to bring the healing presence of Christ to those in need.
Pier Giorgio lived in Italy in the 1900s and was an active member of both the St Vincent Society and the Popular Party. His activism as a young Catholic man led him to engage in diligent action and develop a strong spirit of service, humility and sacrifice.
Pope John Paul II said about Pier Giorgio on the day of his Beatification (20 May 1990):
'Faith and charity, the true driving forces of his existence, made him active and diligent in the milieu in which he lived, in his family, in the university and society; they transformed him into a joyful apostle of Christ, a passionate follower of his message and charity.'
