GUEST SPEAKER:
Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio

​​Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio (aka Dr. Italy)
Raised in Italian/Irish neighborhood in Providence, RI, Marcellino D’Ambrosio never thought about being anything else but Catholic. But like other Catholic teens, his faith was the last place he looked for fulfillment. Following in the footsteps of his parents, both professional performers in their single years, Marcellino set his sights on stardom, playing bass guitar in several popular rock bands by the time he was 16.

The father of five and a business owner, Marcellino brings to his teaching a practical, down-to-earth, and humorous perspective that makes his words easy to understand and enjoyable to hear.  He is a world renowned commentator on Catholic issues having appeared on Fox News' "Geraldo Rivera At Large" and The O'Reilly Factor.   His book The Guide to the Passion, answering 100 questions about Mel Gibson's film, hit #6 on the New York Times best-sellers list with over a million copies sold.  He appears frequently on a variety of Catholic TV and radio networks where he is known as "Dr. Italy."
WHAT IS A PARISH MISSION?
A parish mission is a special pastoral effort that extends over a number of days. It is an opportunity to experience spiritual rituals and sacraments in a heightened and intense way, while focusing on the major themes of the Catholic faith. The parish mission touches the heart and reminds us of God’s infinite love.
