CNEWA Receives Grant From Savoy

Joseph Sciame, president of the American Foundation of Savoy Orders, presented a check for $4,000 today to CNEWA’s chair, Timothy Cardinal Dolan of New York, and CNEWA’s president, Msgr. Peter I. Vaccari, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan to help support CNEWA’s humanitarian activities in Ukraine.

The charitable, educational and humanitarian arm purposes of the foundation are in keeping with the centuries-old hospitaller traditions of the dynastic chivalric orders of the Royal House of Savoy, particularly that of the Order of SS Maurice and Lazarus. The Savoy dynasty governed a unified and modern Italy from 1861 until 1946. 

While deeply rooted in the past, the Savoy orders are “actively engaged in the challenges of modern society,” states Joseph Sciame, and the foundation in the United States supports the humanitarian concerns of the dynasty as well as promotes causes of particular concern, from emergency relief to the welfare of children. 

Michael La Civita is CNEWA’s director of communications.
