Reverand Father Leonardo Iacono

Postby amigli52 » 14 Apr 2011, 13:24

Does anyone have any information a Catholic Priest Father Leonardo Iacono. He is some how related to our line of the Migliacci Family. Father Iacono was responsible for the the development of a living nativity pageant in Bethelem PA. He served at that parish for many years into the 1970's.

Have you asked the parish if they can provide a biography of Fr. Iacono? With luck, it will contain hints such as his place of birth.

It appears that his church was:

Our Lady of Pompeii
820 East 4th Street
Bethlehem, PA 18015
(610) 691-0719

but the church appears to have been closed. You might try contacting the Diocese of Allentown, http://www.allentowndiocese.org/

In this document from the diocese's web site ( http://www.allentowndiocese.org/news/AD02-17-11.pdf - top right, page 20) there is a memoriam notice for Fr. Iacono; he died March 18, 2003.

Thank you,

I have since learned that he was last at the Italian conso.lulate in Rome. Fr. Leonardo has since passed away. He is somehow connected to my line of Migiaccio. I still have sousins in Ponza d'Ischia Italy but I have never met them. I am in the process of locating them. Thank you very much for the reply.

Sincerely
