Rev. Dr. Peter J. Scagnelli
FRAMINGHAM: Rev. Dr. Peter J. Scagnelli, 68, died on July 12, 2017 at his home surrounded by family and friends. He faced his cancer diagnosis peacefully with prayerful hope.

Born in Framingham, he was the son of the late Henry W. and Valeria "Dixie" (Meneghini) Scagnelli. Fr. Peter graduated Carmelite Junior Seminary High School in Hamilton, MA. He received his B.A. from the University of Connecticut in 1971 and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Fr. Peter entered St. John Seminary in Brighton, received his M.Div. and was ordained for the Providence Diocese in 1976. He lived with St. Anselm Abbey for a time and later continued his studies at St. John's Seminary and earned his M.A. in 1995. Fr. Peter achieved his Doctorate in Theology from Boston University in 2003. As a sophomore at UConn in 1968, Peter began translating Latin texts into English for the International Committee for English in the Liturgy (ICEL). This association with ICEL continued for thirty years as a translator and later as an author. From the early 1980's through 2001 Fr. Peter was consultant and author for Liturgy Training Publications (LTP). He became associated with World Library Publications (WLP) and J.S. Paluch Company in 2003. He has written homily helps, prayers, hymn texts and translations. Peter also worked as a disk jockey at WHUS and later at WILI in Willimantic, CT.
