Brother Victor-Kenneth Curley, Director of the Holy Family Community, Mont La Salle, has aided in establishing a library that documents the history of the Italian-American community in Pittsburg, PA.
According to a recent story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brother Victor-Kenneth, who grew up in the Penn Hills neighborhood of Pittsburgh, donated a sum of inherited money to fund the library in conjunction with the Italian Sons and Daughters of America national organization. The library is located in the organization’s local headquarters in west-central Pittsburgh.
Brother Victor-Kenneth’s involvement in establishing the library began with an essay that he wrote that recounted memories of his late grandmother. His desire to pay greater tribute to her life led eventually to his role as the library’s benefactor.
