On May 25th, 2014 the house-museum of the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi was inaugurated and blessed. This was his house till the 15th of September 1993, when he was killed by the mafia. Inside the house there are most of the Giuseppe Puglisi’s belongings, such as books, the original furniture, clothing, liturgical vestments and other memories that were kept and guarded by the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi’s family.
The house-museum visit will give you the opportunity to give a close look to the way of living of the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi. The simplicity and the sobriety of what is shown in the house-museum helps us to understand the choice of living in poverty and the “functional” relationship he had with the objects, especially his predilection for books; indeed, more than 6’000 books were found, most of which are have been donated to the Diocesan Seminary of Palermo.
The CPN is an association founded in 1991 and inaugurated in 1993 in the district of Brancaccio (Palermo). The identity and history of the CPN are strongly linked to the memory of his founder: the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi. He was priest in Brancaccio till 1993, when he was killed by the mafia.
Visiting the CPN is a unique opportunity to see the today’s work of the volunteers and operators that carry on the work started by the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi in the difficult neighbourhood of Brancaccio.
The inauguration of the “Padre Pino Puglisi e Padre Massimiliano Kolbe” Sport Center makes real of the dreams of the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi. He developed the idea to create the Sport Center in order to let the children of Brancaccio have a place to play and avoid staying by the street. The 6’000 square meter area of the Sport Center, built in Brancaccio, hosts a playground, a volleyball/basketball court, a soccer/tennis field and a bowling alley.
The ACE was inaugurated and blessed by the Archbishop of Palermo, Mons. Corrado Lorefice. The structure is located in via San Ciro 6 in Brancaccio.
The Church of San Gaetano is the parish where the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi celebrated the Holy Mass and is located few meters from the CPN.
The remains of the Blessed Giuseppe Puglisi are hosted inside the Cathedral of Palermo. On April 15th, 2013 the mortal remains of the Blessed, which used to be in the cemetery of S. Orsola (Palermo), were moved to the Cathedral.
