Father Anthony Monaco

The following article appeared in the Steubenville (Ohio) Herald Star on October 6, 1962
The Rev. Fr. Anthony Monaco recently ordained into the Roman Catholic priesthood, will sing his first mass at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Steubenville tomorrow.  He will be celebrant at a Solemn High Mass at 10 a.m.  The Rev. Fr. Monaco is the brother of Mrs. John Ferrelli of 311 South 6th Street, and has visited in Steubenville frequently.  Born in Pettorano Sul Gizio, Province of Aquila, Italy, he came to the United States in 1948 at the age of 14.  He was educated in Milwaukee, Wis. where he resided with a brother Gino Monaco.  He was ordained September 29 at St. Francis Seminary in Milwaukee and will return to Milwaukee for assignment to a parish in that area after the services Sunday.
