St. Vincent’s in Colors: I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival
MONDAY, MAY 30, 2022 | After nearly a two-year hiatus, I Madonnari, the annual Italian street painting festival, brought thousands of onlookers to Old Mission during the Memorial Day weekend. Sister Maria Hoa Nguyen, DC, and several volunteers had been working for many long hours to bring colors to the lives of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Francis of Assisi – the two patron saints who continue to inspire the collaborative ministry of the Franciscan Friars at Old Mission and the Daughters of Charity at St. Vincent’s. The final result of this hard work is a beautiful mural, which highlights the mission of the Fr. Virgil Cordano Center in our community. Thank you to the generosity of our sponsors and supporters for making this truly remarkable mural possible!
