FINAL PROFESSION:

?

ORDINATION:

Verona - 1925

DEATH:

West Yarmouth 15.01.1979

AGE:

 

After his priestly ordination he went  to the USA to teach to our students. From 1940 to 1946 he was back to Italy as general councillor.

With an open and optimist character he was able to listen and to engender trust. Always ready to joke, he was however sincerely good, discrete and available.  His religious devotion was very simple and unassuming, with genuine value.

When he went back to the USA he was elected provincial councillor. He was parish priest in Waltham and where he built the church, and lived there for fifteen years. He became then co-operator in Pittsfield. He retired in 1973 in the house of West Yarmouth and he died there a serene death.
