Aux. Bishop Chappetto at Cathedral

bishop-chappettoPrior to celebrating All Saints’ Day Mass at Cathedral Prep and Seminary, Elmhurst, Auxiliary Bishop Raymond Chappetto, came home to tell his personal vocation story to the young men in the Pier Giorgio Frasatti Discernment Group.

In telling his story, the bishop said, “as I got to know my parish priests and saw all the good and helpful things that they did for the people in my neighborhood, I said, ‘I too want to be a priest.’”

Six years after he graduated Cathedral, Bishop Chappetto was ordained to the priesthood. Today, he is not only an esteemed Cathedral alum; he is the liaison between the Diocese of Brooklyn and Cathedral Prep.
