Passing of Bill Angelo

It is with great sadness that we inform you about the passing of our friend Bill Angelo.

Bill was a Six-Three man, 54 year reteatant at Malvern and father of fellow Six-Three member Mark Angelo.

Bill had been suffering over the last couple years with physical ailments that prevented him from attending retreat. Anyone who knew Bill understands how particularly troubling this must have been for him as Malvern and his SixThree retreat were of paramount importance in his life.

Bill was an intensely spiritual man with a notably jovial spirit who made the long trek each year from Minersville, PA to Malvern to make his retreat. With intense dedication, Bill served our group as “chief registration coordinator”, a task that he did not take lightly. It was important to Bill that he contribute to the Malvern tradition that had been an integral part of his life for decades.

Bill Angelo was indeed a fixture at our annual SixThree Retreat and will be greatly missed by all. We ask you to keep Bill and his family, in your prayers.

Arrangements will be announced by the Donald J. Butler Funeral Home, Minersville. https://www.donaldjbutlerfh.com/listings

Passing of Ralph G. DiGiovanni

It is with great sadness that we inform you about the passing of our friend Ralph G. DiGiovanni. We ask you to keep Ralph and his family, in your prayers.

Ralph is a Six-Three man, 38 year reteatant at Malvern and brother of Six-Three Executive Committee member and former CA Captain Mark DiGiovanni. In 2019 Ralph served as Honorary CA Captain and has been a special friend to many Six Three men over the years.

Ralph has been suffering over the last couple years with progressive cognitive loss and was recently transported to hospice care. Sadly, we received word that he passed quietly last night, Wednesday, February 3, 2021,  shortly before midnight. We ask that his friends and fellow Six-Three men keep Ralph and the entire DiGiovanni family in your prayers during this difficult time.

Services for Ralph will consist only of a Funeral mass to be held at St. Mary Magdalen Church, 2400 N. Providence Rd., Media, Pennsylvania 19063 on Monday, February 8th at 11:00am.

Our line up for Six-Three 2022:

Father Jim Mc Guinn – Rector, Spiritual Guidance and Liturgy

Father Jim is the Son of Eddie and Mary Mc Guinn, both of whom were born in Ireland.  He has one brother, three sisters, and lots of nieces and nephews.  He grew up in Philadelphia, went to college in Massachusetts, and lived for a year in a monastery in Pittsburgh.  He attended St. Charles Borromeo seminary in Wynnewood, PA. and was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in 1988.  He has been a parochial vicar, a high school teacher and chaplain, the director of the Newman ministries at two universities and a pastor.  He is the author and founder of CONNECTIONS, which is a new process that inspires and equips Catholics to grow in their faith and be fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.  He loves Catholic evangelization, helping parishes achieve their redemptive potential, and forming leaders.

 

 

Rob Longo – Friday Evening,  Stewardship, A Mission Of Faith

Rob and his wife Megan are blessed to have five awesome kids ranging from 19 to 10 years old. After 33 years of checking the box when it came to his faith, Rob surrendered his life to the Lord on December 31, 2003.

 

Luke LeTourneau – Saturday Morning, Stewardship, A Mission Of Faith

Born and raised in Springfield, PA, Luke for many years was going through motions of his Catholic faith and just “showing up” at best. It was not until the Holy Spirit went to work on him during a year long process that Luke had a strong reversion back to the Catholic faith, culminating with his miraculous healing of alcohol addiction.

 

Saturday Afternoon – Marty Rotella, evangelizing through music

A Grammy-nominated musician, Marty integrates his gift of music with his unique preaching style for men, women, young adults and teens. He has countless endorsements from bishops and clergy, religious, families and prison inmates. As a noted evangelist, Marty delivers a compelling message of Jesus’ love, forgiveness and mercy to all who encounter him.

 

Kevin Reilly – Saturday Evening,  Tackling Life

Thanks to a fortunate scheduling change, we managed to convince an old friend of Six Three, Kevin Reilly to come back and speak to the group again. After the release of his 2017 book Tackling Life and other recent milestones, Kevin has lots more to share in a fresh new talk about in his spiritual journey.

2019 Retreat Director – Fr. Carl Janicki

Fr. Carl Janicki is the Director of Campus Ministry at Cabrini University in Radnor, Pennsylvania. A priest for more than 20 years, he has also worked in ministry at Cardinal Dougherty High School. He served that community for 12 years as Campus Minister, then President, before moving on to his current position at Cabrini. Fr. Janicki represented Cabrini during the 2015 Papal visit to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families, at which he served in Media Relations, and provided “color” commentary during the Pope’s Closing Mass on the Parkway for CBS 3, Philadelphia.
