Assignment Record– Rev. John (Giovanni) Bocciarelli, C.S.
Summary of Case: A native of Placenza, Italy, John (Giovanni) Bocciarelli was a Scalabrinian priest (Congregation of Missionary Fathers of St. Charles ) ordained in 1945. He arrived in the U.S. in 1947, and worked in parishes in the diocese of Providence RI and Boston MA. In 1997 Bocciarelli was accused, along with Rev. Joseph Fugolo, of sexually abusing a 9 or 10-year-old boy in the late 1960s at a Somerville MA parish. Bocciarelli returned to Italy in either 1995 or 1997, and died there April 19, 1998.
• Docs produced by Boston Archdiocese: 1997 letter by Fugulo denying allegation
Priests in a Parish: We use the
following convention to show a priest's place among the clergy of a parish:
1/2 means that he is the first priest listed in the Official Catholic
Directory (usually the pastor) and that there is a total of two priests
at the parish. The shorthand 3/4 means that the priest is listed third on
a four-priest roster. See our sample
page from the Directory.
This assignment record collates Bocciarelli's career history as it is represented
in the Official Catholic Directory with allegations as reported in
the media. We make no representation regarding the truth of the allegation
we report, and we remind our readers that the U.S. legal system presumes
that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven
guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are
presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise.
Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private
settlements. For more information, see our posting
