Biography of Bishop Joseph J. Ruocco

Bishop Joseph J. Ruocco, the son of Joseph and Concetta Ruocco, was born in Boston, MA on April 21, 1922. He was one of six children. At the age of two years, the bishop and his family moved from the North End of Boston to Lexington. The bishop attended and graduated from the Lexington public schools. After graduation from high school, he entered Saint John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA in the fall of 1941 to begin his preparation for Roman Catholic priesthood.

On May 6, 1948, Joseph J. Ruocco was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston by Archbishop Richard J. Cushing at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston. His first parish assignment was as assistant pastor at Saint Anne Parish in Readville. Subsequent parish assignments followed at Saint Catherine of Genoa Parish in Somerville and Saint Catherine of Siena Parish in Norwood.

In 1971, Father Ruocco was appointed administrator of Saint John-Saint Hugh Parish in the Roxbury section of Boston by Humberto Cardinal Mederios. He served in this assignment until 1974 when Cardinal Mederios appointed him Pastor of Saint Timothy Parish in Norwood.

On December 31, 1974, it was announced that Father Ruocco, together with three other Boston priests, had been appointed an Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Boston by Pope Paul VI. He was ordained a bishop on February 11, 1975 at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross by Cardinal Mederios.

Following his Episcopal Ordination, Bishop Ruocco was assigned by Cardinal Mederios to be the Regional Bishop of the Lowell Region of the Archdiocese. This area of the archdiocese covers the Merrimack River Valley and includes the major cities of Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill and Framingham with a total of 101 Catholic parishes and other institutions.

During the racial school-busing problem in the city of Boston, Bishop Ruocco served as Cardinal Mederios’ representative to the Citywide Coordinating Council and as the Episcopal moderator of the Peace and Justice Commission of the Archdiocese. Bishop Ruocco also served as a member of the executive board of directors of a number of local institutions such as the Italian Home for Children in Boston, Saint Ann’s Home in Methuen, Saint Joseph Hospital and D’Youville Hospital in Lowell.

Bishop Ruocco was also a longtime member of the Massachusetts Order, Sons of Italy in American and for many years served as the State Chaplain to the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts.

After a lengthy illness of congestive heart failure, Bishop Ruocco died on July 26, 1980 at D’Youville Manor in Lowell.

In his homily at Bishop Ruocco’s funeral mass in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on July 31, 1980, Cardinal Mederios said the following:

“Wherever Bishop Ruocco went, people were impressed with and drawn to his spirit of genuiness, simplicity, and above all, his friendliness. To everyone he preached vigorously the gospel of Jesus Christ with its demands for love, justice and peace without compromise. His constant theme was the dignity of human person and the demand of Jesus that we respect that dignity and love one another as he loved us.”

Quite appropriately, Bishop Ruocco’s Episcopal motto was simply

God is Love.

Our patriotic float won third prize at the Chelmsford’s 250th parade; the unusual large crowd made the booth busy (and profitable).  Our 2004 Tootsie Roll Drive came in #1 for revenue –per-member – well done!  The 2005 drive made repeated this, with $19,601 collected.  We’ve provided charitable assistance, done well with our parish events, and the Special Needs events have been well-attended and well run.  Ran a bus to the Catholic Men’s Conference.  We saw Fr.

2009-10 -- Gene Bartos, GK

Job well done for Adam Heroux as new Tootsie Roll Drive Chair. Record earnings for 4th July booth. New meeting place at The Paul Center.

 

2010-11 -- Francis X. Burke, GK      

Building on the foundation constructed for us by our brothers of the past 25 years, the council continued to serve our community through: special needs bowling, special needs fair, free throw competition (several moving on to higher levels), Tootsie Roll Drive (3rd in the state), and our charity night (supporting 2 BSA Eagle projects, and the Paul Center). We participated in the Chelmsford 4th of July celebration by marching in the parade and our booth on the common (successful fund raiser). To these we added the Turkey Raffle, a promising new charity fundraiser. In the next couple of months we will add a jointly hosted Special Olympics event in cooperation with Nashoba Valley Special Olympics. We have also been developing a vision for our next 25 years with Charity as the central theme. Another active and successful year.

 

2011-12 -- Robert J. Chevalier, GK      

Hard work in the July 4th Booth and Parade added to our Charity account to begin this fraternal year. Another terrific Special Needs Fair at the Paul Center and Bowling afternoons in Billerica brought joy to families and Knights who contributed their time and tender care to our special friends. Our successful Tootsie Roll Drive (thank you Adam!) included joining with the Council Parish of St. John the Evangelist for the Annual Golf Tournament. What a great time we had (and profitable) at our 2nd annual Turkey Raffle. We honored our deceased Knights in a Mass of Remembrance and hosted a “Keep Christ in Christmas” service as our evening of recollection at the beginning of Advent. We delivered “Coats for Kids” throughout our community and gave generously in support of charities that are advocates for the unborn and women who are pregnant. We contributed to assist the homeless and we provided scholarships to the faith based ACTS Retreat. Seminarians from our Parishes received financial stipends from our Council - so they will know we encourage their dedication to the Priestly vocation. More great things are to come as we look to new leadership for our next fraternal year and continue to lead as Knights of Columbus.

 

2012-13 -- Charles (Chuck) Carroll, GK      

Spectacular weather and equally hard work made for a great 4th of July producing a profit of ~$1500. Our special needs program continued as one of our highlights, bringing smiles of joy to both the SN children and council volunteers. The Installation of Officers featuring a pot luck supper produced a great turnout at minimum expense. The Council placed second in the State raising over $14,000 from the Golf Tournament and drives at stores and churches. Other activities which keep the Council strong and active included the Mass of Remembrance, Keep Christ in Christmas, Coats for Kids, Basketball Free Throw, and Evening of Reflection. The Coats for Kids was particularly successful as over 100 coats were given to needy children. Father Tom Corcoran was appointed Council Chaplain. We are on track this year for the Columbian Award. The Star Council Award was achieved for the 2011-2012 fraternal Year.

 

2013-14 -- Joseph E. MacShane II, GK      

With hard work we started the year with a great 4th of July. Our Special Needs Fair and Bowling programs continue as one of our highlights for the SN children, parents, and council workers. We had a year with 3 first time fundraisers: a calendar fundraiser, LED lights, and a Vendor Fair. Other activities the council was active in was the Tootsie Roll Drive and Golf Tournament, Coats for Kids, Food Drive, Basketball Free Throw, Blue Mass, Evening of Reflection, Clothing for the Homeless, Ladies Luncheon, and this year we had 5 families nominated for the “Family of the Month Award.” We are on track this year for the Columbian Award.

 

2014-15 -- Michael F. Moriaty, GK      

The year started off with a turbulent 4th of July. Due to a storm and unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to operate a booth. We did, however, march in the parade and included a float and the Fourth Degree. We quickly got back to our usual great programs with the Special Needs Fair. This year we supported the Paul Center by refurbishing their gazebo, for which we received a plaque installed on it. For the first time in many years, our Tootsie Roll Drive was held separate from the Golf Tournament. This allowed more funds raised by the latter to stay with council and be used for local SN projects. As a result of our lobbying efforts regarding the administration of the TRD funds at the State level, the State council agreed to move the TRD funds to their own separate account going forward. Our SN Bowling continues to be a success. We continued the calendar fundraiser and Vendor Fair. Our council was blessed to provide unprecedented support to the homeless through our street ministry. We requested and received a generous amount of fleece material to make blankets and other items that we distributed to the homeless in our community. Also, our brothers really stepped up in providing fresh socks and underwear at every meeting that were also distributed. This year we raised money for the Paul center at our February social meeting at the 99 restaurant and enjoyed a game night in March. The council was active in other activities as well, such as the Coats for Kids, Basketball Free Throw, Blue Mass, and Evening of Reflection. We are on track this year for the Columbian Award.

 

2015-16 -- John E. Bielefeld, GK      

This year has been an eventful year. The Council’s time, treasury, and our combined talents have contributed to several successful Events: For the charitable events: The Council had a successful Tootsie Roll Drive in which we raised enough funds to put us in 4th place in Massachusetts. We shared the joy with Special Needs Children and their parents with a Special Needs Fair, a Special Needs Bowling and a Special Needs Prom Night. For the religious events: The Council participated in the Night of Reflection, Keep Christ in Christmas, Sale of Christmas Cards, and The Mass of The Roses. For the Community events: The Council held the Free Throw Basketball Hoops Challenge, Charity Night and the 4th of July Booth and Parade. For Council Social events: The Council hosted a wonderful speech by Jeff Bauman, partied at Princeton Station, and had fun with a December Yankee Swap. I want to thank all the Worthy Knights that have given their time and effort for all the Council’s activities during the 2015-2016 Fraternal Year.

 

2016-17 -- Eugene F. Bartos, GK      

The fraternal year started with a successful July 4 booth raising a record profit and participation in the parade with many brothers and family members participating. Our Tootsie Roll Drive was also successful resulting in our council placing third in the state for this charity fund raiser. We also ran our annual events for special needs kids: the Special Needs Fair, Bowling, and Prom. Our charitable activities included Coats for Kid, donations to local organizations supporting families in need, pancake breakfast fundraiser for a child who needs a service dog, clothing the homeless. Our church activities included Keep Christ in Christmas, support for Our Lady of Fatima activities, and support for seminarians. We supported Pro Life with a donation for an ultrasound machine and participation in the March for Life. Other activities of note included our annual Mass of the Roses for deceased members, Basketball Free Throw contest, and formation of a Special Olympics committee.

 

2017-18 -- Ubaldo A. Mendes, GK      

We ran a whole host of activities this year. At the outset we had a successful July 4 fund raiser surpassing last year. We participated in the parade and gave away flags which was a big hit with the kids. At the installation ceremony we hosted the “Silver Rose” honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe. Silver Rose has been the KoFC tradition for 58 years and we did this for the first time.We were placed third in the state for raising funds via the Tootsie Roll Drive. We ran our charitable events like “Coats for Kids” doubling the number of coats we typically donate.Our signature events like the Special Needs Fair, the fall and spring Bowling events and Prom were a great success with a lot of participation from the brothers and the kids. One new event this year was raising of funds for ‘Food For Families’. We raised $500 which we gave to the Westford Food Pantry. On the church front, we ran a fund raiser to support seminarians at the Chelmsford Collaborative and participated in Keep Christ in Christmas. We held our annual Mass of the Roses for deceased members and helped with the Blue Mass. In terms of Pro Life support, we teamed up with St. Catherine to hold a Holy Hour. Our other events included Basketball Free Throw contest and participation in the Special Olympics events.
