A street dedicated to St. Josemaría in Rossano Calabro

Rossano Calabro, an ancient city in Calabria with 35,000 inhabitants, and with a rich Greco-Byzantine history, named a street for St. Josemaría Escrivá on March 15.

The street, an important artery in an area rich in schools and institutes, was built to provide thousands of students with a safer access to their schools. The city of Rossano, together with the Accademia dei Fiumi of Cosenza, a corporate apostolic work of Opus Dei, organized the symposium entitled "St. Josemaría, the saint of the ordinary," which was held in connection with the inauguration of the street and a Mass of thanksgiving.
