founded in New Orleans in 1879 has always been presided by important people
who gave all the efforts so that Ustica’s Patron Saint Bartolomeo could be remembered
with great devotion by the usticese immigrants who left their island with the
intent of building a future for them and their family.
the Congregation of San Bartolomeo Apostolo can be proud of being directed
by such a man of great moral values as you are.
Chris, we send our best wishes for a great success with the assurance that your
consolidated experience will keep high the name of the community from Ustica
and we assure you of our collaboration based on updated information ( www.ustica.org
and www.usticasape.it ) which certainly will reduce the distances among all
of us .
Christofer Skinner, to all the members of the Board and to all the people from
Ustica, their children and grandchildren, who always keep high the name of Ustica
with their work, not only in the U.S.A., but all over the world.
Could San Bartolomeo intercede with God for both you and us all, for our island, which we love with devotion, and for all the people that have roots in Ustica, anywhere they are .
