The staff at St. Aloysius Church

The Rev. Anthony J. Simone, St. Aloysius Parish Priest – In May 2017, along with seven other men, Anthony Simone was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Cleveland. His first assignment was at St. Sebastian in Akron and his second was at St. Charles Borromeo in Parma.

After graduating from the University of Akron, he worked in customer service at Sherwin Williams. He eventually discerned a call to the priesthood and entered St Mary Seminary & Graduate School of Theology in Wickliffe.

What Fr. Anthony most appreciates about his time at St. Mary is learning “how much I need God”. He has been involved in a number of ministries and mission trips that included teaching, working locally with hunger centers, homeless shelters, and the disabled as well as working abroad with the people of El Salvador and Tanzania. A love of people drew him to the priesthood and these experiences further developed that love. “The seminary strengthened my gifts and desire to serve.”

Fr. Simone truly enjoys his priestly responsibilities especially the RCIA program and the healing sacrament of Reconciliation.“I’m busier than I’ve ever been, but it is in a very real, fulfilling way.”
