DE PERE -- A Catholic lay movement that is rooted in prayer, Bible study and social justice has formed in northeast Wisconsin.

The Community of Sant'Egidio gathers to pray for the poor at 7:15 p.m. each Tuesday at the Old St. Joseph Oratory on the campus of St. Norbert College. Sant'Egidio began in Rome in 1968 following Vatican II and is recognized by the church as a public lay association. The first community in the United States was formed in New York City in 1993. Today, Sant'Egidio (Italian for Saint Giles) is present in more than 70 countries.

Billy Korinko, a junior from Waukesha, helped start the community at St. Norbert College. He was introduced to Sant'Egidio during a student trip to Rome in 2006. Religious studies professor Michael Lukens brought Korinko and other students to a prayer service at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Travestre.   Full story ...
