This weekend in the parish we blessed the new image, in the icon style, of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. He is in our Church because Stowe is the most popular ski resort in New England and, as the Patron of Skiers and Hikers, Blessed Pier Giorgio provides a wonderful example for all who visit the Church. I hope the veneration of his image will inspire our young people with a greater devotion to the Eucharist and to an active Catholic life. The image is the work of Ken Jan Woo, the Chinese convert artist who has filled Fr. Rutler's Church in NYC with wonderful images.
