Father Anthony R. Di Stefano was born in Brooklyn, New York. He received his B.A. in history from Rutgers University, New Brunswick and Juris Doctorate from Rutgers School of Law. After 18 plus years working as an attorney and establishing his own law firm, Fr Anthony discovered a “new-found love of Jesus Christ”. He served as a lector, extraordinary minister of Holy Communion and lay assistant coordinator of the RCIA program at his home parish (St. Bartholomew of the Apostle, Scotch Plains) before his ordination as a priest in 2018. Fr. Anthony spent his deaconate at Holy Family Church in Nutley and comes to us after serving as Parochial Vicar at St. Joseph’s Parish in Oradell/New Milford, New Jersey. He was a very integral part of Parish Life there and brings all of his energy and talents to our Queen of Peace Community.

Deacon William R. Benedetto

P: (201)-997-0700 | E: wbenedetto@qpcna.org

Deacon William “Bill” Benedetto, former Director of Religious Education at Queen of Peace, is a lifelong resident of North Arlington residing in the same home that his grandfather built here in 1925. Throughout his tenure with Queen of Peace, he has worked as a dedicated teacher of CCD (Religious Education Classes) and as a deacon. After attending Queen of Peace Grammar School, he went on to graduate from North Arlington High School where he met his wife, beloved Queen of Peace Grammar School teacher, Mrs. Lorraine Benedetto. His personal history gives hope to those wavering in their faith. His faith is what helped him cope with the passing of his daughter Annemarie, and what inspired his son Reverend William Benedetto to pursue his own vocation as a priest.
