City of Erie - St Paul's Roman Catholic Church
La Nuova Aurora

Contributed by Rick Landers

The information below has been extracted from the Souvenir Dedication Program, March 17, 1935, for Saint Paul's Roman Catholic Church. The church, located in the City of Erie on Walnut Street between 16th and 17th, had its beginning in May 1891. Ground was broken for a new House of Worship on August 19, 1928, but the economic recession at the end of the 1920s resulted in a partially completed building. With renewed funding efforts about 1933, the building was completed. Images of the pages in the dedication program have been scanned and provided by Rick Landers. Various individuals have assisted in transcribing the documents for presentation here. This particular page has been transcribed by Cheryl Westfall.

Souvenir Dedication Program

La Nuova Aurora

. . . is a society old in organization, rich in activity, progressive in growth, patriotic in motive and broad in religious cooperation.  The interest and support of Nuova Aurora in St. Paul’s Parish activities is one of long history in the Colony.  Of particular note was the maintaining of the Society’s auditorium over a period of an entire year for catechism instruction of the children.  Items of light, heat and furnishings were given freely and placed at the disposal of the Sisters and young ladies in their religious, educational work.  The Parish is deeply grateful for this whole-hearted and unselfish devotion to the task of furthering the cause of Catholic Action.

The Society was organized in May 1907.  It is a mutual benefit association and comprises one of the largest and most influential memberships in Northwestern Pennsylvania.  The history of Nuova Aurora names Mr. Pasquale Capaldi as first president, and Messrs. Thomas Yacobozzi, Leonard Calabrese and Salvatore DiFazio are listed as charter founders.  Many other names of men who have served with distinction in the assembly might here be outlined but space prohibits an enumeration that goes back almost thirty years.

            The present officers are:

                                                David Carbone – President

                                                John De Cecco – Vice President

                                                Joseph Christallino – Secretary
