Donato Frattaroli donato @ J Welcome to Father Rocco's Square in The Heights by Sal Giarratani Father Rocco Cresscenzi was a legend at Don Orione. When he came to East Boston's Orient Heights, he had a dream and that dream lives on in his passing. The neigh- borhood remembers this beloved servant of God. The Don Orione'nursing home sur- (Photos by Rosario Scabin, Ross Photography) vives as does the Madonna across the street from it towering over Orient Heights itself. Father Gino considered Father Rocco a mentor showing the way for others to care for life around us and spoke a phrase I" at summed up Father Rocco. "Ave Maria, Avanti." Loosely translated "Forward with Mary." City Councilor Sal LaMattina spoke of Father Rocco's passion for living the good life and the example he set through his work for those who knew him. State Rep. Carlo Basile, another neighbor on Orient Avenue was also there to share in the honor of nam- ing a piece of Orient Heights real estate in honor of Father Rocco. Father Rocco's fingerprints are all over this section of Orient Avenue and now so will be his name for all to see.
