Alumni Santa Croce

The ALUMNI section of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross offers former students of the University the opportunity to maintain contact and exchange news, ideas, and pictures, as well as information about courses, events, and conferences.

It further promotes a rich network of stable contacts, which is an important resource for our University.

Moreover, it also provides for life beyond its academic dimension, organizing different activities such as concerts, guided visits, etc. This allows the students to experience university life not only academically, but also as a shared space where - in the words of St. John Paul II - one can "learn Rome."

With the purpose of sharing, via the stories of all the students who wish to participate, the inestimable richness produced by the encounter of many different cultures and styles of life, and of displaying the value of the multiculturalism in which we find ourselves, the Alumni Association organizes an annual literature and photography contest. The prizes and criteria for participation are published at an appropriate time by the Association.

Friday, June 21, 2024 (11:00 AM, Aula Magna "Giovanni Paolo II"), the usual event "Welcome to... Alumni Santa Croce 2024" will take place for those who have completed their studies at our University during this academic year.

On March 21, 2024, a new "Santa Croce Incontra" event took place, an internal communication activity aimed at school, students, and administrative staff: initiatives and proposals of the Santa Croce Alumni community were presented, to which all those who have studied at our University belong. Since January 2023, previous "Incontra" events have focused on the ISSR at the Apollinare, the Library, and the Learn Rome project.

Dopo sei anni di missione a Calcutta (India), alla fine del 2023 mi sono trasferito nella Penisola Arabica, nel Vicariato Apostolico dell'Arabia Meridionale, che comprende gli Emirati Arabi Uniti, l'Oman e lo Yemen. La maggior parte dei cattolici in questi Paesi sono stranieri, soprattutto asiatici, ad esempio filippini e indiani. Anche in questi Paesi la libertà religiosa è limitata, ma - entro certi limiti - è possibile vivere la fede e ricevere i sacramenti.

La mia missione è in una zona piuttosto sensibile, dove la presenza istituzionale della Chiesa è resa possibile dalle Missionarie della Carità. Intorno alle loro case, i pochi cattolici e qualche altro cristiano vengono a partecipare alla Messa e a ricevere i sacramenti.

Il Rettore Rev. Luis Navarro ha recentemente effettuato una visita istituzionale in Colombia ed Ecuador, aprendo canali per future collaborazioni e rafforzando la rete degli Alumni all’estero. Durante gli incontri all’Università de La Sabana e all’Universidad Hemisferios in Ecuador, il Rettore ha discusso le attività degli Alumni Santa Croce, ponendo le fondamenta per un dialogo internazionale più ampio. Le missioni sono state accolte con ottimismo, preannunciando nuove prospettive per la comunità accademica.
