Bishop Uglietto Speaks in Haverhill Today

Bishop for the North Region Peter J. Uglietto, vicar general, will bless the renamed Paul C. Rogers Family-Carnevale Funeral Home during ceremonies at 2 p.m., today.

Uglietto, who became vicar general and moderator of the Curia of Boston earlier this year, joins local officials; Miss Italy Amanda Luciano; Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce; and the Victor Emanuel Lodge #1646 Sons of Italy Drum and Bugle Corps during the Italian-themed rededication.

The ceremony is open to the public.

Lawrence A. Carnevale, who has an ownership interest along with Paul C. Rogers Jr. and Joshua J. Rogers of Haverhill, said he is committed to carrying on the Scatamacchia Funeral Home tradition of serving the Italian-American community, among other ethnicities. The funeral homes merged in 2011.

The Paul C. Rogers Funeral Home began as the Leonard A. Tilton Funeral Home in 1919 and moved to 334 Main St. in 1933. The building was built in 1870 and is the last remaining Victorian home in Monument Square, Carnevale said.
