Anthony T. Cipolle was born and raised in Arlington, MA. During his secular career, he worked in the automotive industry and owned a plumbing company.
He says his decision to consider priesthood was based on his years of witnessing the example of the late Father John Kilmartin of Saints Joseph and Lazarus parishes in East Boston. He earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Boston College and a Catechetical Certificate from Saint John’s Seminary in Boston. Anthony was active in his parishes, teaching seventh and eight grade CCD classes and serving as Extraordinary Eucharistic Minister, Lector and Catechist.
