My dear parishioners,


Where was Msgr. Montecalvo last weekend? Unfortunately I wasn’t here. I was admitted for observation at Miriam Hospital. We as a parish have been praying for my cousin Robert Calascibetta who died of cancer on Wednesday. I celebrated his Mass of Christian Burial at our home parish of St. Anthony’s Woonsocket. It was a difficult Mass to celebrate but I did it.

After the Mass I led Robert’s coffin to the entrance of the church. From that point in time I do not remember anything. I did drive myself to St. Charles Cemetery, prayed the prayers, and drove myself back to the church. I didn’t remember any of that and I still don’t. I was confused. I couldn’t remember whose funeral it was, I wanted to know if I was still pastor of Our Lady of Grace.

My mom and brother drove me to Miriam Hospital . They took excellent care of me. I stayed overnight for observation and for many tests. I have an appointment to see a neurologist and to get an EEG.

So that’s what happened to me last weekend and why I wasn’t at church. I thank Colin who arranged everything within a three hour period.

Let’s have a good Holy Week together.



Monsignor Montecalvo
