Fadlou Donated Gold Candlesticks to St. Mary’s

Posted by on December 10, 2012

Mom comes through again, she found this gem for me!

The fact that Fadlou Saba had donated Solid Gold Candlesticks to either St. Joseph’s or St. Mary’s Church in Willimantic is a well known fact in our family.  However like any family ‘story’ it is nice to have some confirmation as it lends credibility to the rest of the family history.  Fadlou was a Sultan in Syria, and a millionaire when he came to this country.  Much of the wealth he brought with him was in the form of gold and jewels.  This article (attached PDF) helps to prove this as fact.
