Welcome Father Amato
This week we welcomed Fr. Salvatore Amato to our Home as our new Chaplain. Fr. Amato has served the spiritual needs of people of the Brooklyn Diocese for over 50 years and comes to us from being in Residence at St. Kevin’s Parish in Flushing. Father was ordained in 1969 and his first assignment was at Incarnation Parish in Queens Village. Over his career, Father was assigned to several parishes and spent the last 23 years of his active ministry at Resurrection Ascension Parish in Rego Park.
During his parish ministry service, Father Amato also found time to earn a Master’s Degree from the New York Institute of Technology in Human Relations and a Master’s Degree from Fordham University in Social Work.
When one spends some time with Father you get the sense that he is a true parish priest interested in assisting the spiritual needs of his parish family. Father feels he has come full circle in his parish ministry by returning to Queens Village once again.
We welcome the opportunity to have Father minister to our community at Queen of Peace. A true parish priest!
