April 23, St. George's Day

Pubblicato: Mercoledì, 27 Marzo 2019

April 23 is the day of Saint George, Patron Saint of Explorers from around the world and in general of every Scout fellow.
The knight George is the symbol of courage and adventure that should characterize all of us who try to do our best in every situation. Robert Baden-Powell was also inspired by St. George and compares the explorers to the old medieval knights: for this reason before a scout promise he or she usually lives a vigil of arms just like the knights.
Every year on St. George's Day scouts of all ages meet in the church of San Giorgio in Velabro in Rome, for the renewal of the Promise scout.

Just there, in 1928, when Fascism dissolved the Italian Scout movement, Salvatore Salvatori kept alive the renewal of the Promise on 23th April: so, secretly, the Roman Scouts was able to overcome the clandestine period.
Also this year the Holy Mass will be celebrated by Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture and Cardinal-Deacon of the church of San Giorgio in Velabro from 2010. The appointment to April 23 at 06 pm (open the map of place).
Usually in this important event there are several groups and communities in Lazio. Would you like to participate? Do you need hospitality or information? Write to us at Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots. È necessario abilitare JavaScript per vederlo. and we will help you!
