Directors Announced

Directors Announced

The fourth set of personnel announcements followed very closely on the heels of the third set (see below). Fr. Tom Dunne sent a letter to the confreres of the province on May 17 publishing the names of four priests appointed directors for the period 2013-2016.

Fr. John Nazzaro, director of the Salesian Boys & Girls Club in East Boston since 2007, was appointed to a third term. The Club is in the midst of major changes at this time.

Fr. Greg Fishel
Fr. Greg Fishel was named director of the Salesian community in Belle Glade, Fla. The announcement did not indicate whether he would also serve as pastor. He replaces Fr. Joe Santa Bibiana, who has been both director and pastor since 2004. Fr. Greg has been assistant pastor of St. John Bosco Church in Chicago since 2007.

Fr. John Serio was appointed director of the community that serves Salesian HS here in New Rochelle, and president of the school, which is part of the job description. For the last year he has been on the staff of the formation community in Orange, N.J., since December acting as director there. Previously he was principal of Don
Fr. John Serio
Bosco Cristo Rey HS in Takoma Park, Md. He served as director of Salesian HS from 1992 to 1998 and thus is quite familiar with it. He is also the province's superintendent of schools. He will replace Fr. Pat Angelucci.

Fr. Dominic Tran
Fr. Dominic Tran will become director of the formation community at Orange. For the last 2 years he has been the province's vocation director, prior to which he was vice director, CYM, and dean of candidates at the formation house. Whether he will continue as vocation director was not mentioned in the provincial's letter.

Additional appointments will be made in coming days.
