Week 1: 3/01/23
Fr. Daniele Criscione, PIME
As US Mission Center Director, Fr. Daniele has taken up a pivotal role in sharing the global reality of the missions through technology. A takeaway from his time in youth spiritual animation in Italy, he is no stranger to using technology for evangelization. Fr. Daniele saw the possibility, provided by Zoom, to join our friends closer than ever before with PIME Missionaries around the world. Now, over distances that once seemed immeasurable, our missionaries can join our families at home in prayer.

Bro. Alessandro Albani, PIME
Brother Alessandro uses a background in therapy to work in the rehabilitation of individuals living with impairments. He works with children living with disabilities at the PIME-founded Bethlehem Foundation Center in his mission of Cameroon. Here, he uses this skill set to assist with the education and rehabilitation programs that the center offers.
