In fact, arrived at least 100 thousand euro funds raised among 80 thousand candidates for confirmation that last Saturday thronged the San Siro stadium for the meeting with Pope Francis. The Bishop Domenico Pompili thanked them, presenting to children, educators and parents the project “House of the future”, which the Church of Rieti with the support of the Diocese and Caritas Ambrosiana, intends to carry in Amatrice, thanks also to the funds collected during the historic visit of Francis.

In particular, it is thought to scout, to parish groups, school camps and families, but also for teenagers and young people in difficult situations. “The kids who gravitate around Amatrice , where the possibility of the future seems to have stopped, will be able to find a place to grow, to live experiences of everyday life immersed in a landscape of great beauty – explained the – We told to Pope that the Milanese guys did their part and have chosen good, giving what they could to give a new future to the community of amateur, especially thinking of the younger”.
