My dear parishioners,


This week has been a tremendously difficult week for me and for the parish. As I write this weekly article, Fr. Almonte is about to meet his loving High Priest, Jesus our Savior. Some of St. Sebastian’s parishioners and I visit Fr. Almonte daily, encouraging him by our presence and prayers. Soon he will be praying for us, enjoying the eternal banquet in heaven and in the presence of our Loving God.


Fr. Almonte has served his God and God’s Church in an exemplary way. Fr. Almonte was a faithful priest. He was ordained a priest on March 18, 1961, as a member of the Scalabrini Congregation. The Scalabrini Congregation was founded in Italy to serve the religious needs of Italian immigrants. Today the Congregation serves the needs of all immigrants in many different countries.


Fr. Almonte served in Canada, in Rome, in Massachusetts, and as a pastor of two parishes in the Diocese of Providence. He was pastor of St. Rocco’s in Johnston and St. Bartholomew’s parish in Providence. He touched the lives of many people. Thanks for your ministry, Fr. Almonte, you were a good and faithful priest.
