John Baptist Scalabrini and Italian Migration: A Socio-Pastoral Project

John Baptist Scalabrini and Italian Migration: A Socio-Pastoral Project

John Baptist Scalabrini and Italian Migration traces the history of the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo-Scalabrinians back to its origins during the second half of the nineteenth century, and then to follow the course of its development in both Italy and Brazil, where its future was determined, up until the year 1934, when it was approved as a Pontifical Institute. The first part deals with the historical context for this study and the second part is devoted to the socio-pastoral program conceived by Bishop Scalabrini to meet the emigrants’ human needs, both social and religious, and, in particular, to that aspect of the program which concerns the foundation of the Scalabrinian Missionary Sisters.
