Greetings from Father Izzo
Archbishop Perez has assigned Rev. Brian A. Izzo as Parochial Administrator of St. Rose of Lima Parish, effective June 20th 2022
I thank Father Dominic for his ministry to you since the death of Fr. Santorsola; and I wish him well as he prepares to move to Maternity BVM in Northeast Phila.
Here’s a little background on me: I was ordained for the Archdiocese in 1998 and have spent my 24 years of priesthood in Parish Ministry. My first Pastorate was near St. Rose’s in Brookhaven at Our Lady of Charity Parish (2010-2016). So, I am very happy to return to the area.
Originally, I am from Concordville, PA and St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Glen Mills. I attended Garnet Valley High School (Graduated in 1986), attended West Chester University (Graduated in 1991) and then entered St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. I am the only (and favorite son) to Joseph and Charlotte Izzo. They live in West Grove, PA. My Grandmother, Doris Izzo, who just turned 96 also lives with them. I have two younger sisters, Valerie Danna, of Aston, PA., and Angela Cavuto, of Coatesville, PA.
With every Pastoral assignment, the priest thoroughly enjoys the People of God (and I can say that with great sincerity) and the work that Gospel requires us to perform. I am eager to come to St. Rose’s and continue the wonderful ministry of so many priests who have been with you. I recall from my days in Brookhaven, your pastor emeritus, Father Canavan. If I can do half as good as him, I believe I will have done well for you.
Dear friends, as I am soon to leave St. Vincent’s Parish in Richboro, I ask for your prayers for me, and please be assured of mine for all of you.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you, working with and for you and serving you, and Our Lord, as your new Parochial Administrator.
Rev. Brian Izzo
