Help Restore the Statue of the Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca at Most Precious Blood Church

Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca, Sicily
Please consider a donation to help restore the newly acquired statue of the Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca at the Shrine Church of the Most Precious Blood (113 Baxter St.) in Little Italy, New York. Once belonging to the San Calogero Society on Elizabeth Street, the beloved statue was rescued from abandonment by members of the community and kept stored at the Italian American Museum (155 Mulberry St.) for the past ten years. Now, with the museum closing for planned long-term renovations the statue has found a new home at the historic church. Unfortunately, time has not been kind to the statue; it is over one hundred years old and in need of restoration. You can help return the statue of the patroness of Sciacca, Sicily to its original glory. 
For information or to donate for its restoration call the office of the Church at 212-226-6427.
