Gary Sinise, Jim Nicholson Receive St. Pio Award


Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 06/07/16

From my friends at the St. Pio Foundation: 

On Friday, May 27, 2016, just a few days after the world celebrated the 129th anniversary of the birth of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, the Saint Pio Foundation organized its second Saint Pio Award Ceremony at the Café Milano, in Washington, D.C.. More than one hundred guests participated at the event and met the awardees and special guests of the event, among which were the acclaimed actors Joe Mantegna and Tony Lo Bianco, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, Hon. Robert P. Astorino, Westchester County Executive (New York), Mr. Franco Nuschese, owner of Cafe Milano, and Father Patrick Conroy, Chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives. The two award winners, actor Gary Sinise and Hon. Jim Nicholson, received a painting created for the occasion by Maestro Oronzo Lupo, artist of the acclaimed San Giorgio Investimenti d’Arte located in Bari, Italy.
