A Vision Unfolding: The Scalabrinians in North America (1888-1988)

This book, A Vision Unfolding: The Scalabrinians in North America (1888-1988), looks into the interaction of immigrants and religion from the perspective of a case history, that of the Missionaries of St. Charles-Scalabrinians, a group of religious men active among immigrant communities since they first arrived in New York in July 1888. The purpose of the book is simply a panoramic presentation of the contribution and work of the Missionaries of St. Charles in the context of the Church’s pastoral action among immigrants in North America. The insights that emerge from the history of this small missionary community still point out the direction of the journey as the Scalabrinians move forward into their second century.
