The local chapter of the Catholic Action (AC) group on Tuesday voiced support for a Puglia priest at the centre of a row over his unsuccessful bid to hold a memorial Mass for a Canadian 'Ndrangheta mafia boss killed in Quebec in May.
AC said it was "close" to Father Michele Delle Foglie,
slammed for trying to pay homage to boss Rocco Sollecito, and
urged its members to remember him and the small community of
Grumo Appula in their prayers.
