Father Michael V. Guglielmelli

Beloved Priest (at Saint Francis in Hoboken) to the better part of three generations of family , Sacraments- from Baptism to Funeral,  is killed in a tragic car accident on a County Road in Freehold along with family members last night

Sister Dora Guglielmelli is listed among the deceased and two others including his sister Shirley made it but are in critical condition

Information is sketchy on the details, but their souls had the benefit of leaving the earth on Pentecost !


Prayers for Shirley’s recovery and the repose of the Soul of Father Guglielmelli is requested

It was not uncommon to find many families whose parents he married as well as themselves. He baptized and provided Sacraments to all three generations of many families

His 47th Priestly Anniversary was last week and he was well known not only by the Italian communities but thousands of NYC and Northern NJ people including non-Catholics

Funeral Mass is being arranged for tomorrow, June 6th. 2017, @7:30 in the evening at Saint Francis , 308 Jefferson Street in Hoboken, NJ 07030

Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord , may perpetual light shine upon him and may his soul and all the souls of the Faithfully departed rest in peace, Amen

One of his favorite saying are on the back of this, one of his Priestly anniversary prayer cards

“While we still have time , let us do good”
