Pietro Rossini, SX, Ordained a Deacon

Xaverian Missionaries Celebrate on the Feast of the Epiphany
HOLLISTON, Mass. - Jan. 11, 2023 - PRLog -- The feast of the Epiphany is the missionary celebration of the Christmas Season. So, it was appropriate that on Saturday, January 7th during the 5:00 PM Parish Liturgy at St. Mary's Parish, Holliston, Bishop Robert Reed, episcopal vicar of the Western Region of the Archdiocese of Boston, conferred the order of Diaconate on Pietro Rossini, SX,  of the Xaverian Missionaries in an extraordinary celebration filled with joy.   Bishop Reed was joined by Fr. Mark Coiro, pastor of St. Mary's, Deacon Ronald Dowding and Deacon Martin Breinlinger of St. Mary's, and eight members of the Xaverian Community from our Holliston, Wayne, New Jersey, and Franklin, Wisconsin communities,  led by Fr. Mark Marangone, SX, the U.S. Delegate Superior and Fr. Rocco Puopolo, SX, the local superior in Holliston.

Deacon Pietro's parents traveled from their home in Salerno, Italy to witness this important step for Pietro.  Both the parish community and friends of the Xaverian Community filled the Church. A reception in the Parish Hall followed the Ordination.

Deacon Pietro completed his theological studies in Italy in 2020 and then came to the USA to study Communications.  This past month he graduated from Boston University with a Master's in Communication, specializing in Video Production.  He will serve as deacon both at the Fatima Shrine and St. Mary's, Holliston until the summer when he returns to Italy for ordination to the priesthood.  He is then assigned to a Media Team for the Xaverian Missionaries that will cover news and events from any of the 19 countries where Xaverians serve.

The celebration was live-streamed in order that Xaverians and friends of Deacon Pietro from around the world could witness this joyful event.  The link is https://www.facebook.com/SaintMarysChurchHollistonLive/videos/516103603923707.
