My dear parishioners,

 

Let us continue to pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Alfred P Almonte, CS. Let us keep his family in our prayers.

 

As you know we have a visiting priest at St. Sebastian’s. His name is Monsignor Francesco Viscome and he will be with us for almost one month.  His present position in the Church is a Prelate Auditor of the Apostles Tribunal of the Roman Rota (one of 23 supreme court justices of the Catholic Church.)

 

Monsignor Viscome has a great educational background. He holds a doctorate in Canon Law from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome “summa cum laude”. He also has a doctorate in Civil Law which he received from the Libera  University (LUMSA) in Rome.

 

Monsignor Viscome was ordained a priest on June 27, 1992 for the Archdiocese of Crotone. In 2001 he was named a Canon of his Cathedral. In February 2007  Monsignor was named a Chaplain to His Holiness with the title of Monsignor.  In October  2016 when he was named a Prelate Auditor he was raised to the highest rank of Prelate.

 

He has a number of publications in professional magazines. He authored a spiritual book entitled “Nel mio cibo, veleno. Crocevia di un ammalato.” In this book he describes his spiritual journey from health to a death experience back to health.

 

St. Sebastian Parish welcomes Monsignor Viscome and I ask you all to do what you can to make him feel at home.

Thank you,

Monsignor Montecalvo
