It is with great sadness to announce this passing of Fra Vincenzo D'Elpidio today.
He was instrumental in the continuation for the cause of his dear friend the Servant of God
Padre Domenico da Cese. It was Fra Vincenzo who traveled to Rome earlier this year to retrieve pictures of Padre Domenico that were used during the Anniversary Mass for Padre Domenico held on September 20, 2020 at the Basilica of the Volto Santo, Manoppello, Italy. He was also present at the funeral services for his dear friend in 1978. (Pictured below on the right side.)
It was to this office that Fra Vincenzo gave his blessing and approval through Professor Antonio Bini this past year with the hopes of doing so in person.
I offer my most sincere condolences and prayers to the family and to his Capuchin Brothers.
May his memory be eternal.
