Dear Father Secondo,
The San Fele committee and the 450 guest at our Reunion 2001 wish to sincerely thank you in assisting us make the day an overwhelming success.
The Mass and your heartfelt talk concerning the deeds of our San Fele ancestors and their roots in the Italian culture and in the Catholic Church was the high point of the day. It was also a needed and necessary message.
The statue of the Madonna di Pierno, surrounded by beautiful flowers was a true highlight of the day. It is our hope that the restoration will begin immediately.
Thank you for joining us at the reception. We hope that you enjoyed meeting the San Felese men and women, many who had their first opportunity to view the beautiful church and social hall.
It is our hope to continue having our Reunions begin with Mass at St. Anthony of Padua Church. If the number of guest continue to grow, a bigger reception hall may be necessary.
We also wish to thank our Italian Consul Lucy Caracci Cullens for the invaluable assistance she gave to the committee and your wonderful church choir that added to the beauty of the Mass. Please express our gratitude to them.
Again, a sincere thank you for your assistance.
John A. Christiano/
