Evolution of the Mission of the Scalabrinian Congregation

This study follows the historical evolution of the Scalabrini Congregation. In particular, it questions whether the foundation of Bishop Scalabrini was to remain tied only to the pastoral care of the Italians and their descendants or was it to opened also to other groups of migrants. It concludes that the congregation is directly or indirectly in favor of the Italian Emigrants and their descendents, as well as all of those who present analogous pastoral needs regardless of whatever migratory cause and wherever they may be.
