Saint Anthony’s Society is pleased to announce that Theodore Pasto is the recipient of the 2017 Father Mike Ciullo Scholarship at St. John School. Teddy will be attending Boston College High School in September.
“The members congratulate the teachers, staff and families of Saint John School on another successful academic year,” said Jerry Moretti, President of St. Anthony’s Society, “and we wish Teddy and all the graduates much success in High School and all future endeavors.”
Father Mike Ciullo was the Chaplain of Saint Anthony Society and an honorary member of the Feast Committee. His family immigrated and settled in the North End in the early 1900s. After high school he joined the priesthood as a member the Carmelite Order. He served in our armed forces and traveled the United States serving God and country. Although his family moved away, he never forgot the North End and his beloved Saint Anthony’s Feast. Wherever he was stationed, Fr. Mike would return the weekend of the feast to celebrate Mass, carry Saint Anthony through the streets of the neighborhood he loved and greet neighbors and friends with a smile during our day long procession. Fr. Mike was taken from us at a young age. St. Anthony’s Club established this scholarship to honor his humble example.
