Father Mazzuchelli inspires us today Print

Bishop Donald J. Hying's column

This month, I will be offering a special Mass at St. Patrick Parish in Benton followed by a blessing of the newly-renovated rectory which will serve as a museum to Venerable Samuel Mazzuchelli, who is buried in the parish cemetery.

I have always had a strong devotion to him ever since I was a child and my family visited the Sinsinawa motherhouse and I learned about his remarkable life.

Father Mazzuchelli’s life

Born in the cultured world of Milan, Italy, in 1806, Mazzuchelli entered the Dominican order at the age of 17 and volunteered to serve in the new Diocese of Cincinnati as a missionary.

He was ordained a priest in 1830 and sacrificially spent himself for the rest of his days as a circuit-riding missionary, establishing parishes in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa. He also founded the order of the Dominican Sisters at Sinsinawa.
