Fr. Pius Caccavalle, OFM Cap. celebrated his 60th Anniversary of Priesthood

Fr. Pius  received a degree in Canon Law from the Gregorian Institute in Rome in 1949.  He was Pastor at St. Anthony's Parish in Passaic, NJ from 1964-1970. Later, he taught in formation programs for a number of years. Father has also served in a number of parishes as an Associate, Mt. Carmel - Passaic, St. Ann's - Hoboken, Immaculate Conception - Bronx and Mt. Carmel - Orange.  As Spiritual Assistant to the Secular Franciscan Province of the Stigmata, he provided excellent guidance to the Executive Council. Following this he worked in the Marriage Tribunal as a Canon Lawyer for Marriage in the Diocese of Metuchen.  His energy and enthusiasm inspired him to volunteer to serve for two years in Zambia, Africa teaching in the Formation Program when he was 70 years old. Fr. Pius is presently stationed at St. Francis Parish where he works with the Italian and English speaking communities.
