You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

S. Elena
Nel mirar quel sasso amato,
  Che raccolse il sommo Bene,
  Mi ricordo le sue pene,
  Mi rammento il nostro error.
Parmi questo
  Il dì funesto,
  Che spirò l’eterna Prole,
  E che il volto ascose il Sole,
  Per pietà del suo Fattor.

Eustazio
In te s’affida e spera
  Ogni dubbioso cor,
  Iride messaggiera
  Del sospirato dì.
Scopri il bramato stelo,
  Quasi colomba ancor;
  E mostra che del Cielo
  Lo sdegno ormai finì.
