From assisting 250 Ciao Bella, happy recipient of the "El Planeta" 2012 newspaper Powermeter Award. Citizens of East Boston and Massachu- setts, in general, voted for 100 individuals that most impacted their lives in Massachusetts. A representative of the "El Planeta" newspaper asked 10 Hispanics on the street and in the businesses in East Boston, "Which agency or individual most impacted your life in East Boston?" and almost all said: Dominic Avellani or the East Boston Adult Ed. Center. "For me it is an honor because I am an ex-immigrant from Italy," stated Mr. Avellani who came to the U.S. in 1958. Mr. Avellani holds an MA in Guidance and has done graduate work at the Universidad De Las Americas in Mexico. It was a joyous occasion united at the Bos- ton Museum of/'me arts on February 27, 2012 to be among such great dignitaries. Among the 100 recipients were Governor Deval Patrick, Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray, Boston Mayor Tom Menino, City Councilor Felix Arroyo, State Senator Sonia Chang- Diaz, and many more. In 2012, the East Boston Adult Ed. Center is celebrating its 40 m anniversary. It is a Center that began in the North End of Bos- immigrants, refugees, and American school dropouts per year to assisting over 3,000 per year. Thousands of these deserving individuals have obtained at the Center their GED, U.S. Citizenship Prepara- tion, Computer Skills, English "I, II, III, Car Permit Prepara- tion, tutoring in all 5 academic subjects, placed in colleges and universi- ties, given the ATB Vocational School Entrance Exam, and much more. The "El Planeta" award, although it was awarded to Mr. Avellani, also belongs to the school, staff, administration, and agencies and individuals which support the Commu- nity Educational Center since 1972. The coveted "El Planeta" newspaper award was given to Mr. Avellani because his Center reflects not only the Hispanic Community but the city of Boston in general. Although 80% of our students are Hispanics, the other 20% are people from Brazil, Haiti, Morocco, eastern Europe, and American school drop- outs. The Center prides itself in assisting individuals from East Boston (80%) while the other 20% come from Chelsea, Lynn, Revere, other Boston neighborhoods and more. The Post-Gazette congratulates Mr. Avellani for a job well done. Saint Colette by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Saint Colette was born Nicolette Boellet on January 13, 1381 at Corbie in the Picardy region of France. Saint Colette's father, Rob- ert Boellet, was a carpenter working at the famous Benedictine Abbey of Corbie; her mother's name was Marguerite Moyon. When she was twenty-two her par- ents passed away and Colette became an anchoress, (a woman who retires into seclusion for re- ligious reasons), of the Third Order of Saint Francis, un- der the direction of the Ab- bot of Corbie. She received her habit in 1402. It was during the four spired to reform the years that she lived as a re- Franciscan Second Order, cluse that she became in- (Poor C/ares) and to return Greater Boston's Affordable Private Cemetery Traditional Buria[ Hot 617.524.1036 3 ] the Italian community for over 100 years/ Boston Harborside Home Joseph A.

J it to its original Franciscan ideals of absolute poverty and austerity. In October 1406, she turned to Benedict XIII, (Pedro de Luna) who was one of two claimants to the pa- pacy, he, residing in Avignon France and Pope Gregory XII in Rome, the result of what came to be known as the Great Western Schism that started in 1378. Benedict received her in Nice, in southern France, and al- lowed her to transfer to the Order of Poor C/ares. He gave her permission through sev- eral papal bulls, issued be- tween 1406 and 1412, to found new monasteries and to complete the reform of the Order; the Nuns of the strict observance were known as the Colettine Poor Clares. Saint Colette traveled throughout France and Flanders founding convents, 18 during her lifetime, and inspiring existing convents of Poor Clares to adopt her strict observances. It was during her travels that she is said to have met Saint Joan of Arc, at Moulins in 1429. She prescribed ex- treme poverty, going bare- foot, and the observance of perpetual fasting and absti- nence for the monasteries that followed her reform. Benedict X/I/, (Pedro de Luna) stepped down at the Council of Constance, July 26, 1417. The Ecumeni- cal Council of Constance was held at Constance, now in the Grand Duchy of Baden, from November 5, 1414- April 22, 1418. One of its chief purposes was to irra- diate the Western Schism and to restore ecclesiastical unity. Colette died at Ghent in March 1447. She was beati- fied on January 23, 1740, by Pope Clement XII and was canonized May 24, 1807 by Pope Pius VII. Everybody feelin' that alli- gator skin just about now?
