"In the beginning, He was simply Padre Angelo

Roncalli with a divine calling to greatness"  ECD

Roncalli believes that elderly and handicapped should be able to maintain their independence when they cannot handle the burdens and expenses of home ownership. Roncalli also believes that we should help those in need to live with dignity.  To achieve that goal, Roncalli has established two housing facilities to serve the elderly and handicapped communities in Connecticut.
