Keeping Traditions Alive
Eugene Frioni, President of the San Rocco Foundation in Aliquippa, Pa., presented a $500.00 check to Lieutenant Candace Horsman of The Salvation Army, Aliquippa branch, to help feed the needy in this unprecedented time of isolation and need.
The San Rocco Foundation is a 501c 3 Pa. non- profit organization, dedicated to fostering the virtues and sharing the history of St Rocco, the patron saint of contagious diseases. During this national pandemic we feel compelled to honor him by helping those in need. We ask that you join us in pray to deliver us from this isolation.
O great St Rocco, deliver us, we beseech thee, from the scourges of God:
Through thy intercession, preserve our bodies from contagious diseases, and our souls from the contagion of sin
Obtain for us salubrious air, but above all, purity of heart
Assist us to make good use of health, to bear sufferings with patience; and, after thy example, to live in the practice of penance and charity, that we may one day enjoy the happiness which thou has merited by thy virtues.
St Rocco, pray for us (3 times)
The Salvation Army continues to be in need of financial help to allow their ministry to reach those in need. Please send your donations to:
