About Father Andrea Povero

My name is Andrea Povero.  I was born in a town called Ivrea, close to Turin, Italy. I am almost 33 years old and I am the last one of 4 children. When I decided to enter the seminary, I chose to enter into a “missionary seminary.”  I went to a retreat close to Rome and there, together with 300 young men, I put my name into a basket.  In another basket were the names of the all the missionary seminaries around the world.  When my name was pulled from one basket, it was matched with the name “Boston” from the other basket. I was sent to Boston in November 2007.  I became a priest by the grace of God on May 19, 2018. For the past two years I have been the Parochial Vicar of three parishes:  St. Thomas Aquinas and Our Lady of Lourdes in Jamaica Plain and Saint Mary of the Angels in Roxbury.
