Reception in honor of His Eminence Edward Frederick Cardinal O’Brien, Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem
The Saint Pio Foundation, with the support of the Generoso Pope Foundation, is pleased to announce a reception in honor of His Eminence Edward Frederick Cardinal O’Brien, Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
The event, which will include remarks by Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino, will take place at the Generoso Pope Foundation, located at One Generoso Pope Pl., Tuckahoe, NY, on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM.
The event will serve to present the “Adelia” in honor of Cardinal O’Brien service on the Foundation’s Religious Advisory Board.
The Adelia takes its name from Adelia Maria McAlpin Pyle, who was one of the closest friends of Padre Pio. Adelia, also known as Mary, converted to Catholicism and used her wealth to build a new church, a monastery, and a seminary in Pietrelcina. Today, we present the Adelia as a way of recognizing those who have gave their time and supported the Saint Pio Foundation.
