New Pilgrim refuge in Rome: The Confraternita di San Jacopo officially signed an agreement withthe Suore Figlie della Divina Provvidenza last month, essentially to take over a wing of their convent for use as offices and as a pilgrim refuge. The facilities are described as 'vast'.It is in the via Galvani in the south of the city, about 3km SE of St Peter's, and will be officially opened in Holy Week withwardens/ospedalieri from the Confraternity. It occurs to me that they might welcome ospedalieri from other countries too.See report on their website http://www.confraternitadisanjacopo.it/Notizie/Ultimissime/SpedaleProvvidenza.ht/m Well done, them!
