WARWICK — Cardinal-elect Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York recently assigned Father Angelo Micciulla as Parochial Vicar to Warwick’s Roman Catholic Church of St. Stephen the First Martyr. The appointment was effective Jan. 25. Micciulla, a native of Staten Island, studied for the priesthood at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Yonkers, where he received his masters of divinity degree. He was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of New York in 2005. Micciulla’s first assignment was at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish in White Plains, where he served from 2005-2008. His most recent assignment was as Parochial Vicar at Sacred Heart Parish in Suffern. Although he stated that he will miss Sacred Heart, he added that he looks forward to his new assignment at St. Stephen’s and becoming more acquainted with the Warwick community. Micciulla is also a motorcycle enthusiast and he would like to explore the area on his Victory motorcycle, which he plans to bring here in April. Rev. Chris Yount, pastor of Warwick’s United Methodist Church, shares that hobby and like Yount, Micciulla would also like to conduct an annual blessing for bikers and their motorcycles at St. Stephen’s. “Father Micciulla is a delightful young priest,” said St. Stephen’s pastor, the Rev. Michael McLoughlin. “We’re very happy that he has been assigned here and we look forward to his being with us and serving our parish for the next few years. Please give him a warm welcome.” - Roger Gavan
